  i'll look into it but based on some of the reaction i've read this
morning, i can honestly say that i've never been as disappointed with
some of my fellow open source advocates as i am right now.  literally,
someone on the TLUG list just now suggested that he simply couldn't
justify the kind of donation i was talking about as an acceptable
business expense for his company.

  you don't really want to know what i'm thinking right now.
