This is why I was pretty leery of buying you computer stuff.  I (personally, 
can't speak for others) didn't want you to see this is the carrot half of the 
"carrot and stick" combo :-)  I'm happy with everything that you do *now*, no 
need to drive your wife even /more/ nuts.....  Think of it as appreciation of 
everything you do, rather than a means of making you feel guilty for not 
doing more.
