I too have to be stuck on a windows machine because that is what my user base 
is on. I can't have something better, they would get jealous!!

But I'm on the same page with the "liquid painkiller"!!  ;-P

Now just an hour on the train and 10 minutes to home, and I'm there..

Hurry up 5:00!!!

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
