Egads. Sounds like that TV commercial for some sort of headache pills
(Advil, Tylenol, something like that)... the woman sitting in front of
the monitor, late at night, massaging her temples... she leans on the
keyboard... the message appears: "DELETING ALL FILES ON HARD DISK" as
windows close - blip! blip! blip! - and the machine shuts down... =)



Your friend and mine,
