There in lies the problem, no cares how it gets done but what is worse
is that there is an assumption by most computer users that safety and
security are inherent in software design. This just ain't true. The
lack of concern for what is under the hood is the reason the world is
in the state it's in.

I do however see g's point. If my girlfriend ever out did me on the
computer then you can bet I'd get my act together quick ; ^)
