I'm too busy "re-labeling old shit" to waste my time posting to people
(on dist-obj) who have already made up their minds.

I just don't have the time right now for this sort of pissing contest.
Maybe later, which is why I remain on dist-obj.

DNA seems to be fancy window dressing over their warmed-up
COM, DHTML, ActiveX, etc. Who cares what they call their shit?
It's always
the same shit, right? The only people this matters to just
happen to be
the only people it's meant for - IS purchasers who can, and
will, get
suckered by new labelling. Ergo - they win again. We don't stand
a chance.

What the hell happened to JoeBar anyway??
Are you alive out there Joe? Ever since Wolfpack came out, I
think we've heard from him. Helloooooo...
