You can thank the lousy winter for my increased productivity.  I had more down
time than normal this winter.  Now that the cold weather has broken, your more
likely to find me on my bicycle or on the golf course than behind the keyboard.
 As for the quality of my work, my philosophy is "there is only one job beneath
me and that is a job poorly done".  If have to sweep the floor, it will be as
clean a floor as you've ever seen.  You can thank my Grandmother for that.

You are welcome.  It' nice to know that your work is appreciated.  And thank
you for your efforts on SWEET.  I've been following your work and it is really
shaping up nicely.  The pin merge work looks really good.  It's nice to see a
well designed specification turn into well designed code.

> I like it.  GREAT job.

I'm glad you like it.  It's always hard to judge how well your work is going to
be received, especially when you make a significant change to the way a program
behaves.  I figured since no one complained yet, everyone was OK with it.
Otherwise, I'm sure I would have heard about it :)
