This appeared on a news letter I recieved. Quote of the day "The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armor to lead all his customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who by peddling second-hand, second-rate technology, led them all into it in the first place." Douglas Adams, author.
than getting a cheap laugh at someone else's expense - especially when they can't defend themselves. Douglas Adams' comment simply confirms my long-held view about him, and presupposes that we're all a bunch of addle-headed sheep, who haven't a brain between us.
The books are funny - if we're talking 'the' Douglas Adams. Especially 'The Meaning of Liff' which I keep next to my comp. It contains a wealth of password-friendly names and makes me laugh every time I dip into it.
