Hey, Lance... Just realized that I've always forgotten to tell
you that use of a hyphenated "no-one" is incorrect. It's "no one" -- at
least according to Merriam Webster's thesaurus. That's one of your
favorite spelling errors. Your other favorite mistake is getting mixed
up about correct punctuation, but DB has covered most of the errors in
