hmmm. i _should_ spell it 'program' here, but old habits die hard . . . i do write 'disk' tho, altho i much prefer 'disc' generally i'm an -ise britisher, but i dislike using |ae| and |oe| for greek |ai| and |oi|, so i reduce them to e estrogen encylcopedia esthetics proper nouns : Oidipous Aischylos latin words : fetus ( the o is an imposter ) formulae foetid i also, as people may have noticed, abbreviate 'i would' to 'i'ld' rather than 'i'd' anyway, back to 'program' . . . it just looks WRONG ! bn __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
