Thu Mar 16 2000 06:09: I'm sick of people complaining about free software taking away programmers' jobs. One, it hasn't happened, and two, the free market does not exist to serve the every whim of programmers. It exists to serve consumers. That's the whole reason we have a free market. If there was some magic way of making food for nothing and farmers and agribusiness started protesting that this would drive them out of business, wouldn't you be pretty pissed off? It's not the best analogy, I know, but it's servicable.
I have three Netscape sessions open and in each of them I have a large TEXTAREA into which I am supposed to enter a message which will be displayed on a Web page. All the TEXTAREAs are the same size, too.
