Great gravey, Yet another list. how and when do all you people (gender
neutral?) find time to do any work. It will be fun to be around 20 years
from now (i hope) and see how all this massive "every one/everything
gotta have a list and server" proliferation rounds itself out. you all
will have some many in brain eletronic implants that you will be unable
to go out in the field and see the forest or the trees. As it is, from
the amount time spend tapping keeys i suspect many of you have not been
out amoungst the trees for many many days. I too am at fault there also.
and i only spend a max of one hour with this gadget. Speaking of which,
it is time to go check the 4 traps.
