    You're pulling our leg. Algore invented it all by himself.
    And without him, this world would not have nearly as much hot air.

    I've got a buddy who calls me up and talks my ear off for an hour about how his digital camera actually records the atoms that make up the molecules in a picture. Like I care. Thinking of changing my number. Wonder if it annoys him when I tell him a cell phone can do that too. And I don't even have a cell phone and don't want one. My Dad offered to sign me up and pay for the service on one. No thanks. People with cellphones come off like they have the world by the tail. I don't even want to talk to you if you are on one, and don't want to see any picture you took with one. Digital schmgiital.

    Yep. And that's why the whole dang thing is made up of software Al-Gore-ithms.

    (Oh gawd. It's way past time for me to go to bed...)

    How ironic to see this posted on the intardwebs. Are you sure your name is not Jebediah? Do you know how to cultivate a field with a horse and wooden plow?

    Don't need to. I'll bet there's an app for that.
