I had a rather lengthy rant of my own in response, but fanning the flames
of a JAVA war are not needed on the sig. For once...I'm not going to send
it. My mom would be very proud.

Suffice it to say...until you pay my salary..don't presume to tell me what
to work on. And if you do pay my salary..you better ask nicer than that. I
do more than my fair share of "charity" work in the development arena and
I'll thank you not to spit on my work.
