    Had a pretty good time going through this thread and the child threads. But surprised to know nobody ever came across/mentioned this thread. This was the first time I was experiencing DaWeisms and since then have been hooked onto that. That was really hillarious and the next one was the HDD downloading stuff in some other forum.

    You should only need comments when there is some kind of kludge you need to warn readers about, just as on a road there are only arrows on parts with unexpectedly sharp curves.

    well to be fair.. i have an account with you guys too. a free one though. i probabaly would have paid too, but indian law does not allow online monetary transactions to accounts outside india just yet.
    i'd have to go to the bank, and get the bank to pay into an account of yours in another bank etc etc....
