    Calling Mrs Victor a "gronk" will *not* put you in his good books.

    All an honest mistake, sir. There's so many active threads I got confused between identification of diesels, hammering gronks into submission and breakfast beer drinking. It won't happen again...

    No he will go more up to date and since there are likely to be so many names and long lists of their indiscretions, he will go for a decent computer like a Cray XK7, with 17590.0 TFlop/s.:nerd:....:smile:
