commercials :D

i am fortunate in that i don't get sad or angry, but do like reading
about other perspectives that a situation may inspire, such as this one
from the site you recommend:

Tech Support: "What version of Windows do you have installed?"
Customer: "... Double glazed."

there really are some true gems on that site, so i'm going to pass it
on to others ... the only problem is that some of those others may have
done exactly some of those things that are on that site. :D :D

In friendship,
