Hi :)
I used to live in a country that had only 1 newspaper and it was only allowed to print good news.  
Even so many of the stories were quite hilarious and not always due to wondering why the article 
got published.  

I do really like Murphy's Law.  Especially of ways of tricking it into giving you what you really 
wanted in the 1st place.  

Most of us on this list really don't mind a bit of extra traffic because we were here before all 
the other forums, lists, Ask bots and such so we are used to dealing with much much higher volumes 
of traffic.  One extra question or 2 that quickly gets marked as fixed really doesn't even get 
Regards from

I thought people might like these quotes

"Just proving that the quickest way to solve the problem is to post a whine to the newsgroups: 
within moments the solution presents itself to me, and meanwhile my ass is hanging out on the 
Net... *sigh*... 
-- Dave Phillips,, about problem solving via news-groups [like mailing lists]"
(thanks to Thomas Hackert of the translators list for having that in his sig)

"The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of 
themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts."
         -- Bertrand Russell
(errr, another sig from the same person)

There used to be someone else on this list that had something like "Friends argue.  Enemies 
don't care enough"
