Geez, Frank, you need to be careful! People who don't know you might think
you're serious! Now personally, I prefer the LARGE Bowie knife...or the 18
inch 12 gauge.

And I must echo my friend's comments. NewtonTalk is now in it's third (+)
iteration, and the current one has been so stable it's scary. Sean would be

Nice reasoning. This is why I always carry a gun when I board a plane.
Statistically it is next to impossible that two passengers on the same plane
carry a gun at the same time.

And now to something completely different...

It seems that things must go wrong for a little time to make you realize
they went right all the time before. I apologize in advance if similar posts
which have been sent during down time will eventually flood this list, but
I'd like to give a great big thanks to Victor.
I don't even remember when the problems with PlanetNewton disappeared
because Victor had taken over. Since then it has always been "sit back,
and wait for your daily dose of NewtonTalk" for me. For all this time,
the slightest hiccup. Something which is not exactly the standard these days
even with companies who have heaps of people paid full-time for keeping
things running smoothly.

So, thanks again, Victor, thanks to those who keep the rest of the hardware
between him and me running, and thanks to all donators and T-Shirt buyers
for their financial support.
