Well, if you want to have fun without dealing directly with Shlomi, you
can go to the which he claims Randal "attacked" (even

some places and then you turn the corner and there's this big steaming
pile of ones and zeros staring you in the face.  For example:

They've had this and other flaws pointed out but they still won't

fix their bugs, I say "off with their <head>s".
