A dozen excellent, /free/ dictionaries on the Net and you cannot be bothered to look things up? And when you quote a word, you do not even have editor support for proper cut and paste to spell it the same way it was used? This is, I guess the ultimate example of how unrequited Usenet contributions are. It is almost amusingly so. | but I think I can safely say that love is more likely to induce love on the | other end, whereas hate induces hate. Hm. I find this rather amazing, but it far off-topic. | I've also heard the argument that real love does not demand anything on | return, and I agree. Loving somebody/something is rewarding in itself. You /really/ need to look up "unrequited". May I suggest m-w.com? | btw, Picking up a CS book here in Osaka (japan) is hard. It is especially so | after the arrival of Amazon.com, which has caused local bookstores to cut | the space for their imported books section significantly. Interesting. My local bookstores are also playing it safe these days. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
