    Typing? It's better than my handwriting. That's for sure! As far as the other typos are concerned.... noted & corrected.

    Thanks, Luis! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Putt's Law: Technology is dominated by two types of people: those who understand what they do not manage, and those who manage what they do not understand.

    And a few at random:

    Never lie about unimportant things.

    A subordinate will exercise independent judgment only when that judgment is wrong.

    Everyone is incompetent
    Corollary: Do it yourself; you are more tolerant of your own incompetence.

    You can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time, but you can't fool mom.

    Darnit. If I hadn't gone to B&N yesterday, I might've been able to catch those typos and participate in the holiday!

    Bob..... thank you for the contributions!!!!! I was beginning to think that the topic itself was one, long, unintended Murphy's Law.

    VFT.... Don't worry, like Hansel & Gretel, I will always leave a trail of unintended typos! (Now, was that a metaphor or a simile?)

    simile: you used like or as

    favorite use of laws:
    When a cat is dropped, it always lands on its feet, and when toast is dropped, it always lands with the buttered side facing down. I propose to strap buttered toast to the back of a cat; the two will hover, spinning inches above the ground. With a giant buttered cat array, a high-speed monorail could easily link major metropolitan areas.
