Sorry, old thread by now, but just wanted to interject that Dave has a
history (too strong a word?) of having a string of bad days off list,
coming on to Rescue, getting involved in a debate about (for example)
why it is OK to call a Mac system box the "hard drive", or why you need
at least 2 GHz to do any useful work, etc. and having a dramatic
flameout, where he unsubscribes.

I think he's done it two or three times in the last year or two.

Acknowledging you have a problem is the first step, right Dave? ;^)
