Intelligent agents, like humans? Systematic ...like reading it over
time...

What a crock of shit.  When will folks wake up tothe fact that if data is
online it is gettable by any number of methods and they are all valid. If
this organization is so backwaterish why dont they go back to punping out
thier precious knowing on a guttenberg press and keeping the pages locked
up in the cloisters for the accepted monkhood to read.

So lets all put two digits in the air
wavem around like you just dont care
fire up  wget and dont be slow
knock knock bitch, here comes da hooooo
hey hoo
bitsuckingdown
hey  hoo hey hoo
bitsucking down
hey hoo hey hooo

going down on your phat data like a circus seal
if you cant handle the load then get yourself real
24 7 is the frame of my time
this is information retrieval not a federal cime


ladies wave your pantyhoes
sing the chorus as it goes

etc etc
