OK, in the spirit of the season, I'll let it go by. I tried to tell you back then that all you had to say was "Did you forget 1976?" when I mentioned pre-1986, and it would have served the same purpose as you calling me Moron
. A little human decency and civility goes a long way. There is no need to insult others on this board -- or anywhere for that matter -- except in very exceptional cases.
Just remember the answer to the question "What are erasers made for?". People make mistakes. That doesn't mean they are a moron.
Now, for the record, I hold a Masters in Mechanical Engineering, worked up to Program Manager during my 20 years at it, and I walked away (just needing a thesis) from a PhD in Physics because i changed fields into Software where I have made quite a nice living for the past thirty years -- and still putting in 40 hours a week at age 70.
That is who I am. That is why when I saw you continued to be excessively rude and insulting, I just put you on my ignore list (you were the only one there). I waited for others to respond in this thread to see whether this was really an apology, so now I have removed you from the list.
