Thanks for the links, Eric!
Hey, there is a post from *me* in that thread. <grin>

Back when I was at ADOT on the FAST project... I remember'd that thread, but
I never knew I was a part of history in the making!

I like it most when I replied to a point in the original post and said:

"> 4. I paid good money to get insulted." (He was complaining about the
Dilbert strip.)

And I wrote:

"And just think, I can go to work and get *paid* to be insulted... :-)"

And ohmigawd, my post had my famous "Victims of Temporal Displacement" sig!
Thanks for the walk down memory lane!
