In recognition of adiewoo...

To commemorate adiewoo's well deserved elevation to the PN peerage of "bright sparks" I should like to propose a new category, that of:
Damp Squib
Those who aspire to gain this valuable appendage should be seen to have achieved:
(a) to be seen to have posted a large number of fatuous, facile topics.
(b) to have achieved notoriety in the art of going off topic.
(c) to have been warned several times for excessive use of smileys.
(d) to be notable in posting the last in a thread that contains the
      definitive option or answer, thereby spoiling for others what
      would have been a completely random contents topic.

Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Ah! well, there will have to be some exceptions of course, some will be just too far advanced for the rest of us to compete with...no names no pack-drill of course!!

Of course it does, and if you hate your printer and have considered throwing it out of the window you are in at a high level  Grin

What! all of them, if so you'd be far too young to qualify...
