Hi everyone,
What i can't believe is that i doing something for a living that can be done by a ten grader

I feel soooooooooooooo ashamed but do not read too much into it as i remember in the early 80's there was a child prodigy that was deemed to be the next einstein (i can't remember the kid's name) but it seems that the kid is now is flipping hambugers. It's not how knowledge you have but what you do with that knowledge.

Yours Sincerely
