:-) for once I agree with you. I will not defend Tom, he  doesn't need me to 
do that and I actually get quite amused when he defends himself. I'm going to 
tell you a little secret. I don't use tla! I like very much the technical 
background and there are lots of real cool ideas but tla, IMHO, sucks too 
much for a lambda user like me.

Back in the days of arch, written in 30K lines of shell scripts, Tom was 
exactly like he is today. He's cut for an astronaut suite but also cut in the 
same cloth as the titanic's captain.

So Tom is tom and Pierce is also really pierce (I'm impossible to define and 
my wife is like your wives, even more impossible to define)

It would be great to meet for a beer (well a juice would do  for non alcohol 
drinkers like me) May be next time I'm in the states for a conference.

That's your analysis.

One thing struck me, Mr Bild talked about the US as a "democratic-force". I 
have some problems with putting both words together but what I really wonder 
is where has Mr Bild been the last 50 years?

Give us a break, Bush has taken the practice to scare the shit out of you and 
us and steal your money will you're buisy salvaging the little rights he 
leaves you. You have your government taking your for idiots and you all go 
round waving little flags stupidly instead for asking it the right questions. 
Want an example? So rRumsfeld say that he leaving his post is a possibility. 
What happends then, nada, nothing, zero, nil. With all the money that guy has 
been putting in his pocket, I'm sure he'd say whatever you want to hear.

IMHO, Bush re-election wouldn't surprise me the least and if Kerry is elected, 
I don't think it would change a damn thing!

Cheers and happy votes, Nadim.
