you used that term without meaning it? now *I* am offended.

;-b

sorry, folks, you are all behaving most childish. i have already given up on
using any decent software on this shitty operating system i am forced to
use, and i don't really want any more discussion of faulty components
or to restrain myself if i write the name of the unspeakable "operating"
system in any way i like to relieve myself of this disgust building up. i
therefore will now unsubscribe from this list and furthermore stick with
CVS.
