RE: Setup.exe sugestion/annoyance

Yep, he's Rob.

Nope, that was me.  I was taken before The Hague for my crimes against
usability.  I told them I was just obeying standard borders, but they would have
none of it.  Only my winning smile and magnetic personality saved me from the
gallows.  As it turned out, I promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade
to the Los Angeles underground.  Today, still wanted by the government, I
survive as a soldier of fortune.

So give credit where credit is due, huh?  Sheesh.

You want the reason?  You want the reason?  You can't HANDLE the reason!
