Heh, THAT'S not going in the sticky. It was more like "Due to a
combination of circumstances...."
It's unfortunate, and certainly not a show stopper type issue--again, it
has to do with the sort of people who will get caught by it. Well, I
see Vince moved my sticky to an announcement, so hopefully, we'll catch
some of the people.
For those of you who labor on the release notes and FAQ--fear not, there
are still many techie types who DO benefit from your work and believe
me, we are grateful.

Buffy: It was exactly you, Will. Every detail. Except for your not
being a dominatrix... as far as we know.
Willow: Oh, right, me and Oz play Mistress of Pain every night.
Xander: Did anyone else just go to a scary visual place?
Buffy: Oh, yeah.
Giles: (raises glasses)
