Everything has a cost. Even breathing clean air has a cost. I got a another good idea for you... Why don't we just tax the air we breathe? Imagine the trillions the government can make to support the failing U.S. Post Office. But I got a better idea! We could always shut down the US Post Office and let Private Businesses take over such as FedEx, UPS, DHL, etc. Then the government can tax them for all the snail mail.

If you're buying laptops with that spec for $400, I'm sure we'd all love to know where.

LOL! My thoughts exactly! Here is the quote for those unfamiliar with the movie Taken: "I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you and I will kill you."

Real Programs don't use shared text. Otherwise, how can they use functions for scratch space after they are finished calling them?
