* Erik Naggum
| Thank you for pointing out the misuse of "take" over "make", a remnant of
| my native tongue which I now cannot imagine how slipped in there.

* Doug McNaught
| AFAIK, "to take a decision" is perfectly standard British English.
| Americans tend to use "make" instead.

  FWIW, this did /not/ help.  I pronounce my R's in the right place, and
  I'm damn proud of it!

Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
