    tried in experiment with my now non-existent golf game. what is the optimum number of beers I can drink while playing golf where my game improves but just one more drink would cause it to start a decline. Never found out, after a few I just didn't care about it anymore....

    Workarounds for Translocation. If you have respect for your user and their files, this is literally not an issue.

  7. @Eugene D I am trying to understand English, and it's my only language :)

    Getting better at Englishing is just a matter of practice.

    Running a project and then instantly spotting some minor syntax error. Then, while cursing the world, waiting and watching the progress bar lurch towards the eventual failure.

    Robocalls! Some days I get so many I want to hurt somebody. And yes, my number is on the do not call list. And it's useless to threaten decapitation to a recorded message.

    That ICANN forces you to provide an accurate address, email and phone number when you register a domain, leading to Robocalls, junk mail and junk email.

    You can use a forwarding service to reduce the amount of nuisances. Dynadot even offers it free.

    I'm more upset that there's a system in place that allows scumbags to just suck up the details from all new registrations. I believe that ICANN should have accurate details on file, but it also shouldn't be accessible by the general public.

    Remember, the telephone does not have a Constitutional right to be answered. Caller ID and answering machines are your friends.

    Set up a Google Voice Phone number so it acts like an answering machine. Best thing I've ever done! Now I don't even hear it ring. :)

    Just a small issue with the OP of this thread and his updater module:
    Initiater is not a word.
    (Initiator is, however!)

    I love using Asterisk PBX and the blacklist module to put them in a conference room jail with each other. You guys talk amongst yourself and stop bothering me. :)
