Indeed, as do I. It just so happens that *I* think the whole thread is a
perfect candidate for [OT], being non-technical in it's nature (apart from
the "very young children and passwords" -bit)...

[OT] was created more or less as a direct result of Fred getting napalmed for
posting links to articles, which usually had some sort of relevance to the linux
community. It's the place for non-tech stuff.
