Hello all,
I found this funny dialog on the web. I think it is worth a smile :-)

"What is feff," You ask?
"Well, I am glad that you asked that," I say. Then I continue, "Feff 
is a computer program that makes wiggly lines appear on your computer 
"Not my computer screen," you say.
"Yes, I suppose not YOUR computer screen- MY computer screen... 
Anyways, sometimes the lines are long and really very wiggly, and 
sometimes the lines are hardly very wiggly at all. But, there are 
always at least a few wiggles; you can count on that."
"And another thing about the wiggly lines," I exclaim. "Sometimes 
those wiggly lines are pretty good wiggly lines, but then again, 
sometimes they are pretty bad."
"How can you tell the difference," you ask?
"Well, that's really very simple. Just go show the wiggly lines to 
your boss, and if he looks HAPPY then you have just shown him GOOD 
wiggly lines... If he looks SAD then you have just shown him BAD 
wiggly lines. And if he says, 'What the hell are all these wiggly 
lines?' then you probably just went into the wrong office; try down 
the hall a bit...
...just a little further...
...now on your left...
... next one... that's it! Good luck with those wiggly lines!"

But virtue to pursue and knowledge high"
