AH, but you see, I neglected to mention (for security reasons :P), that before
locking the closet, I removed the hard drive with the DB in question, and hid
it in a safe buried under 100m of solid ice, somewhere in Alaska. You are also
overlooking the recently installed Java-enhanced security cameras, which will
send me E-mail on 13 accounts, page my uncle, alert the Alaskian police, and
leave voice-mail with your home address for my girlfriend's second cousin,
who's husband owns three shotguns and a red pickup.

Did you REALLY think it would be that easy? <G>.
And I'm enjoying these stupid comments, damnit. :>
Oh, while I'm in here -- four other ppl requested a copy of Big List of Verbs &
Props, so I'll give it a whirl t'morrow. Do you think it makes more sense to
have all the verbs by object and then all the props by object, or everything
grouped by object (ie #1's verbs, then #1's props, then #2's verbs, etc..)?
Or some other way of organizing it? Hmmm..Verbs could be sorted by how many
lines difference in length, if any..
(this question open to anybody..)
