I agree with Foo that there is way too much emphasis on affiliates and consumerism on SF these days. However, this thread also demonstrates what used to happen all the time on this forum. Great topic, some erudite discussion, which rapidly descended into name-calling, and childish bickering from people who are more than old enough to know better. Oh, and endess tedious in-jokes and references, which really weren't very funny and which seem calculate to exclude all but a...
 Sorry to hear it. I find that insomnia (which I suffer from on-and-off) doesn't affect me physically only mentally, i.e. I can run, but I'm stupid. At least the running seems to clear my head for a while...
