A friend of mine was interviewing for a level 2 technical position at a large computer company. They asked him "If you could be any kind of tree, what type of tree would you be?". He thought about it for a second and said "deltree". Amazingly the interviewer got it right away and liked that it was both a DOS command "deltree.exe" and the fact that the company was Dell. He got the job.

I care about the security of MSE a great deal. MSE does what Av should do. It also does it in the background like it should and out of the way. MSE is a program/tool that is outstanding. Surprised to see it come out of Microsoft. If a paid version were needed/required, I'd pay, and I don't pay for Av protection.

I had questioned the E/I as well. From the following page: Answer: EI stands for Educational and Informational programming. It is a result of the Children's Television Act of 1990, which mandates broadcast stations to program at least three hours of educational programming a week. EI is often seen on Saturday mornings. In creating the Children's Television Act of 1990, Congress was reacting to a FCC report that recognized the role television plays in a child's development. The CTA essentially reduces the amount of commercials during children's programming, and increases the amount of education and information in each show.

Amen. Anyone who is not touched by the episode "Spider" for HBO's From The Earth To The Moon, really didn't believe in any project anyways. Me personally, I think that the Grumman team that designed, tested and built the Lunar Modules (LEM) are one of the greatest engineering teams in the history of mankind. I think that the rover team are in a close second. Thank you Spirit, you will go down in history. And I would like to offer this quote from Alan B Shepard: "God speed and good tail winds"

Two is not equal to three, even for large values of two.
