If this is it I will never be able to show my face on USENET again... 
And if I had a dime for every time I've said that... well... no one
else would have any dimes.

I have a sneaking suspicion that this may be it though.  I will try
and let you know in the morning.

Both good suggestions, but I am afraid your first suggestion will
probably be it.  If that turns out to be the case, I will have
submitted a "my computer's cupholder doesn't work" question to this
newsgroup, and will sincerely regret the waste of time and bandwidth
to all concerned.
