They misspelled "Boundaries" on the intro. "boundries"? C'mon, guys. Interesting though. Looks like they want a piece of the forums. May work, may not. We'll see. I don;t have my VIN here at work, so hafta look later.

Time to hit the man pages or something and regain some mojo. Clearly my results are inadequate. That'll solidify the winter 'blahs' real fast!
