Umm... Dude, you're a programmer. Writing code shouldn't be that
difficult or be considered a last-resort sort of option. Hell, I write
code all the time, and if I can do it with my average-BAC, anybody can
do it. :)

Well, thanks for your opinion, but since I was asking questions in
order to figure out what the problem actually is and try and help
present better solutions for those problems, then I'm just going to
keep on doing that.

How about instead of getting pissy on internet mailing lists, you try
to explain yourself better when having conversations, eh?
