Top ten (or so) ways of re-stating Sean's "software tables" problem:

1. "Software tables may need to be manually updated."

2. "Software tables that may need manual updating."

3. "Manual updating of software tables may be required."

4. "You may need to update the software tables manually."

5. "You may need to manually update the software tables."

6. "Tables from software are updated manually, from time to time. Maybe."

7. "You might want to do that update thingy to the tablized sofware part."

8. "Software tables are software tables. Somebody should update them if
needed."

9. "Something that may need to be done maintenance-wise which may cause the
program to operate within designed parameters during normal operation is the
process of updating the tables within the program software structure
manually."

10. "Just update the software tables, damnit!"

11. "Tables. The software kind. These are the things that may need to be
updated."

12. "To be (updated) or not to be (updated). That is the question (for a
software table)."

13. "Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a table update.
That started from a guy named Sean, who gave techwr-l an ache.



Now... I hope we can all be content in the fact that all the best and worst
permutations have been said. So get back to work!
