Yup, especially on satellite bands, since with the exception of 15m
the sats are completely in the privlidges of all except Novice.  Good 

You know, 1/2 of the Extras out there got to Extra from having a
natural gift (i.e. it was easy for them) for CW.  Many of the others crossed 
the line in rule #6 from the "10 Truths of Life:"

6. There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

You know, the fact I'm gonna piss off a bunch of insecure OFs when
I become an Extra 4/15 just makes the victory that much sweeter.

And, just think, all I wanted for the last 15 years is some HF access.
Too bad I wasted all of those hundreds of hours getting stuck at
approximately 8 WPM, when I have little interest in CW.  What interest I did 
have has evaporated, as I now know the type of person who would
be at the other end of the CW QSO.  (And I've used the computer to copy the 
Extra CW band as well-- but only on 25% of the QSOs out there 75% of the ops 
don't have a good enough fist..)
