I just knew that if I posted this, there would be something wrong with
it =)

The excuse I'm currently using for my poor grammar is that I haven't
been to Germany since I was 14.  Need to go soon, though -- I haven't
seen my grandmother since then.

Unless you need to share ultra-sensitive super-spy stuff with me, please
don't email me directly.  I will most likely see your post before I read
your mail, anyway.
