Cute, funny even.

*There* you go. As for reading things and conducting your own research
and all... well rest assured I'm a big fan of that ancient method. No
really, that *was* sarcasm. However, in the *context* of this thread
you'd have to go waaaay back to my first message in which I said, among
"I'd love to hear from more people about the solution(s) they use."
Cuz, ya know, hearing about the tools *employed* by users in this
community could be interesting/enlightening. Hence my
wasn't-exactly-looking-for-more-lists comment. Maintaining context does
require careful bits of that thing called *read*ing though.
Ok, I really did think this was funny.
