Thanks Tony. I'll try that.
Our Computer Science department has been dominated by Communism and
Russian Socialism since Pearl Harbor was attacked in 1941. They
wouldn't teach us what we need to know after they attacked us,
especially after re-attacking us on 9/11 instead of checking their own
nuclear reactors and weapons for Y2K problems.
