        Seeing how it was me that Dan managed to drop it I can agree to
the limping, and ironically enough it's the same foot that I had broken 3
times in the month before he crushed it. And just yesterday hauling a pc
down to our storagge office on the 5th floor I tripped and fell down the
steps and have just re-broken that very same ankle. Computers are
hazerdous to your health. =+)
