No offence taken.

I agree and not only surprise folks but also surprise yourself.

I'm not stuck in my job, I enjoy it, although it does have its problems
but then so do 99% of jobs. Learning is an on-going process and is available
from other resources other then the internet.

I'm not against this technology, I agree its here to stay and look forward
to improvements. We, are moving (slowly) towards ebusiness - we have never
been on the bleeding edge - and are awaiting the arrival of 2000 in order
for us to get onto more productive issues.

My original issue still stands and you agree by stating family is what
really matters - there is something else out there.
