    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    I hate it when people double post. So do the moderators.

    I think Jimbob's talking about a moderator over at www.computerforum.com. Of course perhaps you're a moderator over there too. Don't have a clue what a VIP member is.
