I've had quite a bit of experience with Dell, and I must say they were very, very good about tech support. First time, I was transferred to an Indian guy. \"Oh great,\" I thought, \"Here we go...\" But it was not to be. The Indian guy on the other end of the line was actually very well-informed, kne...

Wrong, ccb. That is the theory of microevolution.

We've dealt with a 2-foot snow set, a 3-inch ice/snow/sleet/ice layer set (in that order), and two further 6-inch snows this winter.

It also takes three hours per run to shovel the driveway (side-entry, 2-car garage on a house set far back on the property)... Most annoying. :P

Pardon me, but yes, I have read the sticker. It encourages a student to look something up. The STUDENT can then determine what they believe to be correct, as opposed to being force-fed.

In this application--you don't. You reset the user's password to a random string and e-mail it to them.

That's what most high-security sites do, at any rate; and more and more sites that I've seen are using that very technique.

Fruity Loops Studio can also perform a similar task, though its patches aren't as good--and it's a heck of a lot cheaper.
