    C++ programmers will dismiss you as a cretinous simpleton for your inability to keep track of pointers chained 6 levels deep and Java programmers will pillory you for buying into the evils of Microsoft. Meanwhile C# programmers will get paid just a little bit more than you for writing exactly the same code and VB6 programmers will continue to whitter on about "footprints". - FunkyDexter

    Why not ? He is God and he loves us so he should be willing to help his lowly creations. Besides, he seems to love people cheering him on and if he gives me the numbers, I'll be his cheerleader until the day I die.

    Not so sure that God loves people cheering him on that much to be honest. Anyway, the Big G has a bit of a thing about money. Easier for a Sopwith Camel to thread a needle and stuff like that. On the whole I don't think 'help' and 'money' are ever really considered to be in the same category by God (although sadly this view is not shared by all His alleged followers!)

    Ah, you just reminded me i haven't yet seen Evil dead 2013 so i bought a copy (from mtorre...ehm) and i am downloa, eh, i mean cracking the case open right now.
    Of course Europe has more relaxed laws when it comes to movies at home....And software....And music.....
    Ehem, of course i detest piracy and this is in no way a message to anyone to use pirated software, ok? Thanks.
    (And anyhow it's RobDog's fault because he reminded me of Evil Dead movies :P )
