First time I've replied to the list for a while....hello everyone!

Reasonably simple answer to this one (although not that constructive) tell
the narrow minded fools to go take a running jump. These morons, crazed by
the power they think they have to make our lives a misery should be told in
no uncertain terms to crawl back into the God forsaken hole they came from.
I wouldn't mind but they all think they are clever just because they can set
up a network and upgrade windows......well I can do that and I'm not an IT

Larry stand up for's their problem and they are trying to
make it yours.
