I'm personally dealing with the issue of "love-hate" relationships.
governments & google.
microsoft & the military.

Powerful applications they are. :thumbsup:

Yes, a higher dose might not hurt, rms4evr

Wow...I didn't mean to drag everyone :thumbsup: ...I just hate Microsoft :cool: . But since this has morphed into "rms4evr has issues," well...I guess when I am passionate about something, I get kind of psycho :flowers: ...my high school chums and I would get into violent religious and political debates at lunch. Then I would start yelling, and everyone would look at me like I needed to be institutionalized :inlove: .

...Anyway, Go Google, go! :trumpet:
