I prefer something like, "don't you trust me?" They look at me like, "what are you talking about." Then I say, "well you must not trust me because you are watching in my area as well as yours." It doesn't lead to a fight (in fact, they usually laugh and apologize) but it gets the point across.

LOL!! Can't fault that! I would always rather that a partner "rip me" to my face - that gives me the best chance to learn from my mistakes, or maybe clear up a misunderstanding.

jkjenning, I just noticed your signature. Tell us how you really feel! M$ has the best marketing department in the universe! That is the only way they can survive.

I'm using my Windows (server) 2003 PC right now, but I've been using my Apple Powerbook more and more.

How do I really feel?
Open-source Rules ---> proprietary software is a problem, not a solution.
I'm lazy, so I'm using Fedora Core 4 - but there are lots of stable alternatives to M$ Windoze. Yea, they have quite a treasure chest - oh well... they still can't produce reliably stable software and they ignore the quality software others write because "it's not theirs", choosing to try to cram their own standards [Java, anyone?] into the market instead.
