I do.  (it's funny how you can get to "know" someone like that without
ever having met them, but it's a fact).

I was actually being quite deliberate when I used the word "braindead"
before - the automated click-of-a-button response may have its use, but
one should always be careful with when to use it.  Is there any way of
filing a a bugreport on "jani"?
Nah, perhaps I should file a doc-bug, but to be honest, I can't be
bothered when the PHP project can't. It's a sad state of affairs.

It's 21:55 here and I'm really just a sad old git :-) 

Well, I've been busy keeping an eye on my 5 year old most of the day.
His favourite playmate from next door was away today, which meant I
didn't get to do much work until around 1830. (Amongst other things, I
have a decidedly difficult mysql core dump I'm trying to capture).
