I've been programming professionally in C#, ASP.NET, Perl, JavaScript and VB6 (!!!) since 2003. Emacs and FireFox are my preferred environments. After that, I like to throw wikis at problems to make them go away. And if they don't go away, at least we've got the page revisions under version control!

You know what they say about bad code? It's anything YOU wrote, or anything I wrote more than 6 weeks ago.

:::sigh:::

I keep trying to add days to that equation....

I'm holding off accepting my own answer for a few days, in the hopes that somebody shows up with something technical. I hate reboot-voodoo.
