Phew. I feel silly for taking the baited bait, but was probably going to say those things sooner or later in this thread anyway. Don't feel bad that we didn't get the joke. <tip type="Lightening up after a hard day's work" author="Ben Henick"> There is little work-related stress that - for us USian and Canadian Webniks - cannot be cured with regular doses of bottled Guiness and home screening of "Monty Python's Meaning of Life" (which captures perfectly the insanity we deal with in the course of working). "Life of Brian" is also quite good for the cinematic portion of this course of treatment. "Office Space" while full of the same rich irony may well carry side-effects of strong bitterness... which is under the circumstances redundant. That's what the beer is for. </tip> -- Ben Henick Web Author At-Large Managing Editor http://www.io.com/persist1/ http://www.digital-web.com/ persist1 at io.com bmh at digital-web.com -- "Are you pondering what I'm pondering, Pinky?"
