Your opinion is always important, it's just that when it's top-posted it
wrecks the flow of the dialog for posterity's sake. Just consider this
list to be a text manual, perpetually-in-the-making, The Answer, or

"A" and finally arriving to the "Z", the Ultimate Problem solving Answer.
Of course the Austrialians on this list have no problem, as they are
upside down to start with! :) Ric

..the Sin of Ignorance, and the Sin of Stupidity.
