Most of you predate me by a decade then at the least. HA! I started on Windows 3.1 and I'm happy to say that while I remember 14.4 modems and 5 1/4 floppies, most of what you guys speak of is gibberish. It's like telling a man with a steel knife that you use to cut meat with sharp rocks.

I like your signature shozum. Knowing when and how to take risks is the most important thing I have learned over many years of self inflicted disasters.

Steven Brust writes a wonderful fantasy series that begins with the book Jhereg. It's about an assasin's life in a fantasy setting and is a fun, action filled ride. I highly reccomend the series to anyone who likes witty humor and swashbuckling adventure.

That qoute came from his most recent volume in the series.

The meat should taste the same silly. It's only the speed in which it's cut that differs.
