it was actually a Jonestown reference ( for those of you
following the history of "truly devoted" religious cults), but I
have to say I like your story better.

  class=754491921-06022001>DAMMMNNNN.... KOOL-AID!!!!

  give you a little background - I was actually born and spent the first part of   my childhood in Bermuda! There Kool-Aid was an inegral part of growing up for   me :) As well as Oreos with a glass of milk before bed time..   


  I live in Worcester in the UK where Kool-Aid is not even close to available..   Oreos are however in small boxes of 12 from the local Tescos..   


  I would give for a bucket of Kool Aid every now and then...   :(

      Consensus reality (as one of my friends calls     it).  If everyone thinks that something should     work a certain way then they will alter reality so <FONT     size=2>that it works as they think it should.  With all these ads they     can get the masses to believe that it really works     now and then it actually will (even if it's not     supposed to work properly).   :)

    Hey, I saw the ads on TV.  Microsoft now makes     enterprise software, which gives sa's peace of     mind...
    It always amazes me how companies identify a problem, then     create ads to turn people's perception around.      So now Microsoft is telling people that their     systems are reliable and never crash, so system administrators can     relax.
    Hopefully with Win2K they actually fixed the problems, and     are not just posting ads on TV to turn people's     perception around to boost sales.
    Eventually I will figure out how the world works.  It's     taking me a while, though.

            There is,
    however, one significant difference: stability. If <FONT     size=2>Microsoft         <FONT
    size=2>starts making stable
            products, we
    might just as well start using them, but  knowing <FONT     size=2>Microsoft,
