Naw - this is not a typical thread. This is just one of the off
topic threads that spring up now and then, and are kept going for
the pure fun of it. They tend to die off when we have a problem to
work on that interests us. I have even been know to give good advice
on occasion. And some people find my "dumb questions" helpful, even
though they tend to be of hte "Did you remember to plug it in"
variety. (The kind that make you go duh - I thought I checked that.)

On the other hand, if you are expecting me to "grow up", you will
have a long wait. I am here to share the fun I have playing with
these toys that call computers!


Old age and treachery ALWAYS beats youth and enthusiasm!
