I agree.  That's hilarious.  I found it really fun to follow your
problem solving process.  It's funny how you get started with a good
idea and things don't work out initially, but your inertia is such that
you don't want to go back and re-think it.  I guess the end justifies
the means.  You get bonus points for creativity and resourcefulness.

I didn't want to quote the whole message, but if you happened to
/dev/null it without reading it, it's worth going back to the archives
and having a look.
