where would you like me to put that information? its linked off the
http://apiwiki.twitter.com/FAQ page since we wrote it? proactively, i'm
changing the "statuses over 140 characters" on the status/update page to
link to that page as well.

i'm not going to bother responding to this one, except to say that i'm at
home, stuck in bed with a nasty cold, and i'm still monitoring the mailing
list to see if i can help developers out :P
