        Exactly! Someone got the joke. I can die happy now :)

      Never trust any statistic unless you have forged it by yourself...

      perl -e "s>>*F>e=>y)\*martinF)stronat)=>print,print v8."

      Hrmmm....I always thought that 99% of all statistics are made up.....Or was it 96%...ok...94% is probably close enough :)
