I'm reminded to a specific "Computer Stupidity", and please
forgive me that I quote it here:

	Tech Support: "All double-click on the
		File Manager icon."
	Customer: "That's why I hate this Windows -- because of
		the icons -- I'm a Protestant, and I don't
		believe in icons."
	Tech Support: "Well, that's just an industry term sir.
		I don't believe it was meant to --"
	Customer: "I don't care about any 'Industry Terms'.
		I don't believe in icons."
	Tech Support: "Well...why don't you click on the
		'little picture' of a file
		'little picture' ok?"
	Customer: [click]

Sorry. :-)
