As a kid, I was told that you would get warts from handling toads, whereas it was okay to touch frogs.... To this day, I do not know if this is so. As to the hard cased animal in the fairy tale, I believe that refers to the tortoise who had a race with the hare, and ultimately won because of his persistence. I think tortoises and turtles differ, but I am not sure of the particulars. Maybe tortoises are big and old turtles? And, speaking of computer names, I wonder how many of us here have names for our computers? My computer is named Hal. Not very original, but I like it. -- ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ / //_/ // / // / //_/ // Howard Herman / ___ // / //___ / ___ // email@example.com /_// /_// /_____// /_// /_// - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
