    You have to glare at the ceiling of the cave when you say it, get a little red faced, and clench your fists in an angry way. Having a young Kirstie Alley around doesn't hurt.

    You missed the reference, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

    Palmetto, are you trying to scare the kids away?

    then they're on the wrong web site and employed in the wrong job field. There is no excuse for anyone involved in IT to need a Trek reference explained to them. A basic Trek knowledge is a job requirement, and there should be an independent board to certify professionals as qualified.

    As I consultant/red shirt I find myself having to explain things to people that idea of entertainment is a six pack and a football game. For example, you should have seen the manager's face when he asked one of the other developers what the password Muad'Dib meant. Without missing a beat I replied, "The shadow of a desert mouse by the light of the second moon of Arrakis."

    Also, the movie is from 1982 and some people won't watch anything more than a decade old. My kids, on the other hand, only have issues if the movie is in black and white. Currently, I?m trying to get them to watch Arsenic and Old Lace, but I not getting my hopes up because, ?Insanity runs in my family, it practically gallops.?
