I woke up this moring with XTC's 'No Thugs in our House'
song on my mind with the lyric "the boy in blue is busy
banging out his headache on the kitchen floor". The world's
been one big alliteration this morning.

All I can say, is I am happy you feel the system works. I will
keep it and remind you of the fact if it becomes necessary.
I thought we discussed previously on FoRK that populist
opinion had no relevancy and that MS employees were
intentionally mischaracterizing it as the mantra of
the uneducated.
