Take your pick, Sparky. I believe either will do perfectly well.

We need a new phrase.

Trolling while simulatenously whining in the group can now be correctly
termed, labeled or addressed as "going Irene."

i.e.- "darn, Tom, don't go Irene on me."

i.e.- "Notan, I know you're pissed, but there's no real need to go Irene
over it."

i.e.- "don't make me GO IRENE on your ass."

The implication being, don't upset me to the point where I'll stay around
and annoy you in length and duration more thoroughly than a Jehovah's
witness pitbull.

You are an annoying, pompous, no-life pain in the ass to continue taking
such an intellectual beating so publicly.

I hope your mother is proud because you are making a complete jackass of
yourself.

If you missed an earlier post:

I *never* said that *all* drivers (especially third-party) were available.

You asked me, "... ALL drivers for the original configuration of you computer?"

Every driver, for every one of *my* computers, is available.

If that's the case, you've just defined yourself as a Dellbot.

"Dellbot" is now name calling. Here, I thought it was an identifier placed
on certain members of this group by other members of this same group.

Guess, I was wrong. >GR<

I don't think I've read one constructive posting by Irene in this thread. This
blabbing on and on incessantly is the mark of a true TROLL. This newsgroup
would have a higher percentage of useful posted messages if all trolls would go
back under the rocks where they came from... Ben Myers

Who cares what is legal or not legal in the marketplace? Look at
MicroSoft. It is a legaly recognized monopoly that is still allowed
to exist as one.

Tertiary stage, definitely. A shame, really, when a simple blast of
