Well, a few have pointed out that I was whining and that I shouldn't.
I therefore retract what I said. It was inappropriate. It was not
based on any expereinces I have had so bringing it up now was rather

If any offense was taken please let me know. I'll make sure to buy
you a beer or two in Stockholm.


Life is a game. Someone wins and someone loses. Get used to it.
