I just received a news posting from a financial services company that I
do business with and I noticed this paragraph:

"I'm immensely grateful to all the 'dot-commers' who have done this

Notice the term "dot-commers". Geez...just when I was getting used to
web surfers. The author of this quote is Tom Wolfe, the author of "A Man
in Full", "Bonfire of the Vanities", "The Right Stuff ", and others.

"Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish,
and he will sit in a boat and smoke cigars all day."
"The only perfect document I ever created is still on my hard drive."
