Living out there in the country, you have a lot of time on your hands,
huh? <grins> Using words like "quiescent" isn't exactly country, so I
would hazard a guess that you have some classical training somewhere
outside the forest or dell. 

On the Linux users list, they have some script that counts the monthly
stats such as #1, #2, #3, #4, #5 subjects, posters, etc. It's a hoot.

My father, Victor Moore (Vic) used to say:
"There are two Great Sins in the world...
...the Sin of Ignorance, and 
...the Sin of Stupidity.
Only the former may be overcome." R.I.P. Dad.
