in thread I'm looking forward to 2011 the way I once looked forward to ..

I should have been more specific. I was really only referring to most of the numeric date years. You couldn't 'look forward' to 1492, when the event that is most identified with that year could not have been known ahead of time. Ditto 1776 and 1941. You could make the case for 2001 and 2010, based on AC Clarke's books, though. Few people 'look forward' to the year they stop drinking before they finally make the decision, ditto the divorce option. Just picking nits...

Eily says, while failing to write a link properly
[Your Mother]: Goodbye Fancy Feast! Hello Friskies!!!
[LanX]: CB sidebar auto-expansion problem
[Eily]: "tail: warning: following standard input indefinitely is ineffective". I can't help but feel that tail is judging me...
[Your Mother]: Someone had to say it. Better it came from tail.
[LanX]: Cat Mama!
[Your Mother]: Das right.
[Eily]: actually I forgot to provide the filename as a parameter
LanX it reeks.
