    Nuke the Trojan Man

    Well.. although, I got a giggle out of the post, I removed it. May be somewhat out of line for some of our younger site members. I sent out PMs to the 2 member's post I deleted, as well as the Moderators of the Off topic forum. I think I copied Tracy as well.. but I can't remember if I copied...

    As bad luck would have it

    I have to work Friday night on a deployment at 2:30am, and have to be on call all day on Saturday in case of problems.
