Hi Buzz Crew,
Just wanted to remind you that there is a very special time occurring tomorrow.
The only time this occurs this century. Unless, of course you follow the d/m/y standard. Then YOUR special time will occur on August 7th!
Thought Tom, in particular would appreciate this!
Can you recommend an online clock site that has the time/date displayed in that format?
Shove the low!

Hello Tom and various rotating Buzzing hosts, I just might have an extreme solution to getting those pesky LinkedIN profiles deleted ... The next time I am over at my Data Center I will see if I can hook a cable off the LinkedIN server farm in the cage next to mine and when the guy comes over to fix it I will hold him hostage until we get some deletions.
Peper 'PKTHerder' The Packet Herder from Denver
(Pronounced like Pepper ... and no I am not a Dr., I was not a Sgt, I don't have a lonely heart, I don't belong to club or a band, and my wife's name nor nickname does not happen to be salt, however, my family does have a six pack of Dr. Pepers. ... Wouldn't you like to be a Peper too?)
