Set a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of his life." (have it in my quotes file) Don't know where I got that from, but it was surely not from Jingo (even though I love everything by pterry, I haven't read it yet). Don't know *when* I came across it, so can't say whether it was before or after Jingo came out. Bye, J PS: Yes, pterry is great, and pretty original... but I don't think he's above using a great quote when he sees one. ;-) -- Jürgen A.
