I have one thing to say - it is better to burn out than to fade away... Oops. Wrong quote. Been watching too much Highlander :) But seriously, I keep telling people that "Bill Gates is Satan" is not a business strategy. McNealy and Ellison are letting their hatred of Gates cloud their vision. They should focus on products, not individuals. To quote Yoda: "Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering. I sense much fear in you. " ;) OK. I'm clearly feeling silly today. <tip type="preventing crashes" author="Madhu Menon"> Go download BugToaster from http://www.bugtoaster.com Bugtoaster records crashes on your machine and sends a report of it to a central database. They're working towards building a large database of crashes and getting the software companies to fix their software. Hey, I love anything that's going to prevent crashes. So do your bit and download it. It's not ad-ware, so it's cool. </tip> Cheers, Madhu <<< * >>> Madhu Menon User Experience Consultant e-mail: webguru at vsnl.net --------------------------------------- For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archive of TheList go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
