Rant Of The Day THIS RANT 22/04/97

Rant Of The Day is where I get to mouth off about whatever I feel like for however long I like. Theoretically, I'll update my whinge/opinion piece every weekday; in practice, maybe not so often.

[Let me also take this opportunity to apologise to the readers I haven't replied to yet; I'm working on it.] This one was a little of both:

You stole my idea! Before now I thought I was the only person in the world with a 'Rant' section on my homepage. You have dashed my hopes forever.

It seems that Paul and I are not alone. Not only does the word 'rant' produce more than 20,000 hits on Alta Vista, but there's something downright spooky going on.
