not trying to extend this into eternity or anything, but that is still

just because they're testing it, doesn't mean they'll implement it.
and, it clearly says they're still only testing it in compuserve, which has
long been aol's red-headed step-child.

for all we know, some investors wanted to know where that $9 billion dollars
went, so time warner set up an R&D team to generate some paper.

i try all sorts of new ideas all the time, 75% of which go up in flames.

not trying to rant or flame, just trying to keep our feet on the ground.
