This reminds me of a case of applying scientific method
results in the wrong conclusion:
Monday night - drank Scotch on the rocks until passing out.
Tuesday morning - royal hangover.
Tuesday night - drank vodka on the rocks until passing out.
Wednesday morning - royal hangover.
Wednesday night - drank gin on the rocks until passing out.
Thursday morning - royal hangover.
Thursday night - drank Irish on the rocks until passing out.
Friday morning - royal hangover.
Conclusion: the common factor is ice cubes. Leave them out of
drinks to avoid morning hangovers.
Moral, perhaps? Be careful when buying lots of FrameMaker
Perhaps companies that are late FrameMaker adopters are too
precarious already to benefit from it?M<G>
