  1. Thanks, all. So far, I've been treated to lunch at my favotite Japanese restaurant (which I can't afford on my own, so thanks, Mom), gotten calls from all my sibs and their offspring, received the PERFECT gift from my sister, and bought myself a new toy. Tonight, we do birthday cake! And the weather's been simply gaw-jus. Like me. I love birthdays.
  2. Opera Was Hit In London You have to wonder if they'll have security guards, jealous girlfriends and transvestites in the opera version. "Jerry Springer -- The Opera" is coming to the U.S. next year, after a hit run in London. The production will play for six weeks in San Francisco before hitting Broadway. The show about Springer and his raunchy talk extravaganza won the British version of a Tony for best musical. True to the actual show, the stage version features tap-dancing Ku Klux Klansmen, blue language and a parade of low-life guests. Springer himself is shot at the end of the first act and dragged down to hell. Springer saw the show in London and praised the production -- while distancing himself from the Springer portrayed in it. Copyright 2004 by The Associated Press. So I don't want to hear anything about the superiority of British taste.

  14. ...And the question is, is there one? I tried updating StyleXP to v. 2.02, and all that does is give me application errors ("xyz app has to close... send/don't send report"). Make me sick. If it's a hack, what do I change? I've got a hex editor, but not clue how to do this.
