Actually (a bit late) . . . if you want something that costs too much, breaks down a lot, and never uses standard parts, you're looking for a Jaguar circa 1990 or earlier. I'm not sure about after that. They sure do look nice (Aero Glass), but there are better-looking cars out there that don't break down all the time (like Aqua and Compiz Fusion), and some of them even cost less. -- CCD CopyWrite Chad Perrin [ http://ccd.apotheon.org ] Isaac Asimov: "Part of the inhumanity of the computer is that, once it is completely programmed and working smoothly, it is completely honest." _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
