Torsten, thanks so much for your support.  May I ask one favor?
Please, let's let this destructive article die.  We've all seen it and
hurled our lunch already.  Frankly, I think it is unbecoming of Cincom
for letting their name appear continue to appear on this..

We all have our opinions, and with religion, politics, or software it
can be especially tempting to engage in this sort of "I'm better than
you" discourse.  But Smalltalkers who have been here a while and care
about "what others think", and remember our history, know can't afford
to be beating on each other.  The only good that can come from
continuing to post links to that, is that it serves as a reminder of
the _ultimate_ example of what not to do.

Ok, I need to work on code now, not commentary..  We all do.
