And just when you think you've nailed all the connect()s in your client code
(which one must admit will in general probably occur in only one or two

appends, you find your server code is throwing exceptions in the bind()

P.S. Still waiting for a new release of the Unix standard so that the
spelling of the creat() system call can be corrected. <wink>
