That's MY old quote! :-) <<<<<< Well, a search of the archives will confirm that it was originally *mine*! <G> It was particularly apposite at the time, my having made an enormous fule of myself in a preceding post. While I'm in the mood, I'll point out that I think it *may* have been me who originally added "rule one:" (and possibly "screw the insrutable") to another sig I've seen hereabouts (originally on sci.lang(?) many many moons ago), but I wont discount independant innovation for that one. <G> --- Pb (Let's see how fast *this* one spreads...) <GGG-ing like mad at the very bad pun> ************************************************************* This email and any files transmitted with it are confidential and intended solely for the use of the individual or entity to whom they are addressed.
