geee - I'll have to try it. trouble is, the only bar i ever frequented was
the Side Track on monday nights (the local sf crew gatheres there ) and I'm
more likely to be greated with "ok, I'm a tech wrtr from XYZ Co!" "I'm with
QRS Incorporated!" and then they'll all expect me to buy them beers....
could get expensive!

Writer for XXX company, and you will wind up with a free beer or at least
friendly conversation. Try it at your home town. It may work!>>
