>Oh... and CONGRATS to the new Papa and Mama on this list! HA! Now that's
what's really important. Not all the hubabub about what new "code" is hot
and whether a left handed mouse button is called a "thingy".<
No, the right-handed mouse button is the "thingy." The left is the
"doohickey." The one in the middle is the "thingumabob."
We as technical communicators must *always* keep our terminology straight,
and avoid techie jargon whenever possible <VBG>
