Geez, if it weren't for them darn users, our (programmers) jobs would be

I got rid of my home pc for three reasons:

1. I work in front of one 8-12 hours a day, the last thing I want to do
is look at one when I'm home.  

2. I got tired of trying to keep up with technowlogy - a year and a half
ago a P100 was a pretty bad computer, and now you can't even play the
latest cdrom games on it.  

3. I live 2 minutes from work, so it's not a big deal to go in.

Happy new year to one and all.  Here's hoping it is rewarding in all
aspects of our lives.
