mmmnnn.  "From elementary genetics we learn that the 23rd chromosome is 
the "sex" determining chromosome."  your comment sounds a little sexist. 
  anyway, to the people around me on daily basis i am a minor computer 
god.  they never understand what i am doing.  they're just glad i help 
them sometimes and don't do anything to harm their computers.  compare 
me to the 2 or 3 fellows who responded to my questions concerning 
environment variables and i'm nobody special.  so in relation to them, 
i'm a mere noob.  they're big dogs and i'm a late convert little dog. 
see.  but i am trying hard to catch up.  so play nice and don't be so 
hard on me. -eric the chihuahua.
