Sure, stache! Go ahead and submit it! - silveryaspen, 2008-03-03: 22:30:00

Shoot! I posted the above before I read under comments on your verbot, stache, that it has been done before! Today I'm a day late, a dollar short, a fingerslipping, and in a mindripping muddle! - silveryaspen, 2008-03-03: 23:02:00
