Videokarma and PC.org should remain online during the upgrades.

Thanks for the update. If they all three went down I'm sure the universe would shift.

I guess I was alluding to his early "dandyism"...he wore outrageous clothing for a minister in his early days. I think it was Peel. The BBC mini-series from the late 80s shown on Masterpiece Theater is really great. He is portrayed by the same actor who played the mayor in Deadwood.

One of my buddies in my friends list, Daniel, (theNLOwner) is sixteen. Little Dutch Daniel impatiently waits for the changes - new functions, new layout, whatever, I think that the elder we are, the lesser relaxed we respond on what may happen this weekend.

If I can't get used to the upgrades, well, I assume that my 17705 posts are probably enough.

BeamOn I express it this way: Everything changes except change itself. The best book on this topic is The Book Of Changes.

That is it! I did not mean to suggest Disraeli was fresh off the boat.
