Hi David,

Try as I might, I don't see the irony.

Perhaps I'm just too much a foole, or perhaps I'm too excited about 
the potential to fix errant behavior in a multi-megabyte application 
by sending out a  100K stack to replace an incorrect script rather 
than sending a whole new copy of the app itself.

Who are a little wise, the best fooles bee."
