Far too late, yes.  Your ours for life now (and probably longer, if CNRI has
any say in the matter <0.9 wink>).

Actually, the community may not realize that we don't have an office, Jeremy
and Barry live in a different state than Guido and Fred, and Tim is living
in a hotel (although I think I've been careful to whine about the latter
often enough here <wink>).

The *important* thing to notice, though, is that Fred is still replying to
email instantly even after swearing on all that is holy that he'd be out of
touch for 24 hours.
