   You know, I'm just about sick of this.  Now I'm being called a "bigot" 
behind my back for the horrible sin of having some STANDARDS.  Well, 
excuse the living piss out of me, ok?

   I also don't eat cat shit, and prefer things like Thai curry dishes.  
Does that make me a bigot?  It must, it's the same fucking thing.  I 
WILL NOT eat cat shit when Thai curry is available right down the 
street.  Terrible bigot I am, I know.  So be it.

   Those "dramatic flameouts" of which you speak have to do with my not 
being a very patient person, especially in the face of stupidity.  
Incidentally, this is also one of the biggest  reasons why I don't try 
to pretend x86 boxes were designed for production use on a network.

   Fuck you, Lionel.  The fact that people mistake knowing shit from good 
tools for "bigotry" is not MY problem.

   And forgive me if this message is strangely formatted, I'm sending it 
from the mail client in my cell phone (yay Sidekick) because my 
connectivity is STILL down (eight days and counting), and now they've 
managed to fuck up my regular phone line as well.  Would now be a good 
time to mention that this telco's switch control stuff all runs on PCs?
