    I must confess I've been a bit devious and posted a deliberately
    flammatory message, and I'm pleased with the debate that occurred. Thanks
    everyone for the information (nice flames in my mailbox, btw, so that's
    good) =8-).

    Upon my experience with past flamage for other stuff, the flames were
    noticeably weaker and had a much higher signal to noise factor. Keep it up
    guys, I think the slashdotters have moved on. =) And yes, no mailbombs.
