      It's fun to enter a competition once in a while (although it would be awesome if I won, but there's so many people on this that my chances are pretty low). Still, at least we learn juicy details about something (in the case we don't know the answer) Good luck everyone... at least one of us will be happy in the end of the month!

      As with Book Depository, Microsoft is the greatest gift for us all. Our intelligence wouldn't get better without the wide range and reasonable $$ of books straight to doorstep, and the perpetual improvement of computing power. Thank you, Book Depository & Microsoft!
