This is why it sucks to have grown up in a Techie household. I swear upon my grave one day my (yet to be born) child will have a father to take to this...and it shall be me. At the end of the day, little Hurschel Munson Mackie Jr. will look up at me and say "Dad, you kickass" and I will say "Don't say ass...but you are otherwise correct."
