I have to say that Count Zero picked the coolest handle out there. For those who don't know it's from the one of the best sci-fi books ever - "Neuromancer"; you can read it at: http://www.cyberpunkproject.org/idb/neuromancer.html
BTW, don't you hate it when some idiot sends you a 2MB file you don't need, that could have been saved as a 100KB jpg - three times by accident!!!

Geee, I just want to keep talking but that's probably coz it's 4:30am and I'm all alone watching over networks while they sleep. You can all sleep soundly now knowing that the internet is still alive in this part of the world...

Wait, isn't "Count Zero" from "Count Zero", the sequel to "Neuromancer"? :P

*blush*
Yeah, and that's the reason I chose Count Zero as my handle, Gibson's best book, no contest.

On receiving an interrupt,
decrement the counter to zero.

I absolutely agree with you there! (my brain is working better tonight :> )
Something funny on the radio just now - talking about the bizarre things people do in the morning to save yourself minute amounts of time. OK, example: I caught myself brushing my teeth in the shower one morning while trying to wash my hair with the other hand...then I went from the shower to the kitchen and put on some toast so it would be ready by the time I had some clothes on :eek!: I think I saved about 12.4 seconds all up.
It seemed rather odd in hindsight....

Me too, and "Burning Chrome", some really sweet short stories there... Actually I love all of his books, but I like "Count Zero" the most.
