Hey Sam, AFK is Away From Keyboard. I'm actually leaving town for a few days in about half an hour, but I figured you'd respond (you seem to be a very polite guy with good netiquette), so here I am, trying to get one last post in before I leave.

I agree that I'm a Slashdot abuse whiner. Interestingly, since I was banned for a week or two recently, I've gotten out of the practice of reading and commenting on the news stories on Slashdot's front page. And staying out of it really lowers my stress level!

I'm finding that it's a lot nicer just to learn about other people's lives from their JE's and comment when I have something to say.

"Necessity is the mother of invention" is a silly proverb. "Necessity is the mother of futile dodges" is much nearer the truth. -- Alfred North Whitehead
