<Alden> !!
<Nathan_Roberts> Why didn't someone tell me it was broken!
<Alden> Nate: They never do.
<Nathan_Roberts> You have that problem too?
<Alden> Yup.
<Alden> The trick is, only the *paying* customers tell you about the bug.
<Alden> And then not all of them either.
<Nathan_Roberts> You know something, Alden?
<Nathan_Roberts> Being a programmer would be a lot easier if you
		 didn't have any users.

Thu Sep 30
<TheProf> I wish the nutcases would make up their minds. three years
	  ago magnetic firlds were deadly things. Now they have the
	  power to cure everthing and you can buy them to strap on
	  your legs, head and even put in your shoes.
