I was tempted to edit your title: "Do rules rule?" But my nose is still bleeding as a result of a limerick. – belisarius


No, but they nowadays let me turn off the lights at night; 24 hours of fluorescence was really starting to make me feral. Brett says I should also mention the tip jar... – Daniel Lichtblau Mar 13 '12 at 20:48
