I must say I find Chad's post very reasonable and worth reading. When
somone refers to me as a dinosaur I would also be a little offended.
Hence, I understand Chad's reaction to that statement of yours.
If your read his posts carefully you have to admid they are well thought

have controlled my anger ;-)
