    Nancy,

    And, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"....but you can't convince
    Microsoft of that.

    Well, they do have to keep patching security holes....

    There must have been a bunch of them with the last update...it took
    7 hours to download, install, and the required reboots...on each one!!

    It's like the one where there's this wooden fence, and there's a
    peephole in it. One keeps hearing this number (for the joke, we'll
    use "29")...so, when this guy goes to look through the peephole, he
    gets poked in the eye...and now, the voices are repeatedly saying
    "30". <G>

    A cautionary tale... ;)

    My idea of a peep show is looking through a hole...at baby chicks. <G>

    I'm glad I don't have to deal with any of that... <G>

    And, you likely never will...you'll leave it to the Wizard to take
    care of. <G>

    Just don't have them in your hand, or they're likely to poop in them. :P

    Sounds like what forecasters go through each day, trying to analyze
    all the model data. <G>
