I'm not sure which is more surreal, the 11th-hour proposal by
Napster to filter based on filename "because nobody would ever misspell
Metallica", or the interesting twist in Aimster's usage policy, which
would require the record industry to intentionally violate the same
laws they wanted passed in order to get evidence to use as the basis
of a lawsuit....

the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly dissapear
and be replaced by something even more bizzare and inexplicable.

There is another that says this has already happened". -- Douglas Adams

Hang on everybody, we're in for a ride....
