Ooops. One rule in *my* users manual that I should adhere to, whichever
translation I happen to be using, is, "Don't type before at least three cups of
coffee, and under NO circumstances strike/hit/gently fondle the button marked
'Send'". Hmmm... Since "strike" and "hit" are being abor... er, termin... er,
brought to an end, I suppose "fondle" is probably a bad word too.
