Thank you.  I am really quite flattered.

The phones are coming! The phones are coming! (I know you wouldn't recognize the paraphrase but it's from the 1969 movie, "The Russians Are Coming! The Russians Are Coming"--yes, there were movies, only shown--at the time--in places called movie theaters, as opposed to Netflix.)

And don't forget, those little cell phones in your pockets, they'll be coming to attack you soon too. So, if I were you, I would stop letting them communicate w/other cell phones to limit the range of their attacks. (Yes, you know what that means---you have to turn them off! AAAAGH!)

Actually, after looking at both, I like Verdana much better. It is a very clean look (but what do I know?) Bet all you web designers care and will discuss this at your favorite "watering hole".

The most important thing to me is that they don't raise the prices because of the font change.

OK, MY BAD, guys (that shouldn't be taken as males only). I realized (well, it was pointed out to me) that this really only applies to Twitter and Facebook. What can I tell you, I'm just not fully up on that new-fangaled technology. But, I did learn my way around Facebook, so that is progress. Now if I could only learn my way around my cell phone (just kidding).

And, if I learn enough of the computer "slang", my scores on Scrabble will improve!

I like that idea. Now if I HAD any friemployees, I'd use it upon those occasions when I actually want to do some work for which the company is paying me.

Obviously this would only work if your friemployees were not located in your office. Of course then if they come by to talk to you, you could just actually cough constantly into their faces. That would work as well but not be nearly as much fun. This did work well in the era before cell phones, twitter, computers, etc. (Yes, people, there was such a time. I know, it's really hard to believe.)

Thanks.  I enjoyed listening and apparently already had it bookmarked although the website was different--this is much better.  But I didn't see a place to subscribe so I guess it would be easiest if you just let me know when you have a new one out.

Definitely let me know when it will be broadcast-- or else!

Personally, I think the best way to get someone to pay attention to a web-ad is to head the ad, in very large bold letters in the most provocative font available with the word: FREE--no strings attached.

Who would pass up anything starting w/Free?

Perhaps it needed some conversation. Plants do enjoy conversation plus on the definite good side, they'll just listen and not criticize. Kind of nice, especially on "those" days. However, to be safe, I'd sneak it outside or into the "reading room" to converse or your fellow designers will have you taken away. Or, they could just think you are brainstorming out loud, or talking on the phone.

Perfect! Could also take a bottle or carton of punch and poured it over the report. Wouldn't provide the same satisfaction but it would make it a more "punchy" report.

Definitely not as good as your idea though. Priceless!
