I knew you'd have good ideas. Personally, I like Bill's first idea but I
don't think marketing will go for it. :-)
I do like the +NET/-NET and the OnLn if I can get another character for
OffLn. We have less than 65days before the release so I don't think I'll
suggest anything interesting like Carla's suggestion. As much as I like
that idea, the developer sits within striking distance. :-)
Thanks for the ideas and keep them coming if you have more.
