going to be able to modify it, either.

I thought of you as a very intelligent woman.  Someone that would jump at a
chance to help us "non EE" out.

You had a excellent chance to show the world just how smart you are.  But NO
!,   You chose to show us just how ignorant you really are by your arrogant,
sarcastic reply to a plea for help.

Yes ! you_are_right, we do need new "techies" seems like some of the "old
ones" won't help. What a shame.

Can you spell "ELMER" ?
