Hey, Maggie:

Do you remember (no, you are probably too young) those early descriptions of Java, which claimed that Java was "100% buzzword-compatible." I have found that most announcements in the Java/J2EE worlds live up to that claim.

And, unfortunately, I've worked in that realm for so long that mangling perfectly good words together into abominations has become my habit.

By the way, anybody read, "Forget the Adjectives. Just Trademark Your Prose" By ALEX FRANKEL ? (It's such a vacation for ME when William Safire goes on vacation!) Frankel begins, "Writing that I 'rollerbladed downtown to fedex a package,' I employ two brand names as verbs, and chances are that my actions are perfectly clear to all readers. ..."

Well, I gotta go persist some data, now. See you around; maybe at the Webinar?
