An undefined problem has an infinite number of solutions.
Robert A. Humphrey

You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat.
Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955), when asked to describe radio

The second half of a man's life is made up of nothing but the habits he has acquired during the first half.
Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821 - 1881)

In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress.

I have remembered! It's going to be lonely though! I had to remind Doreen yesterday - she'd forgotten!

BTW - I have a lovely interesting book on hyperspace and superstring theory - even I can understand it... without my pointed ears! Now... where's that damn cat got to?
