    "what size do you want?"One of my wife's ex-boyfriends would ask the same question of people when they came into his shop. Of course, he was a druggist and the people in question were asking for prophylactics…On the birth of the internet…If I recall, the story correctly, the two sites were talking on the phone as well as the two computers were being connected up. They started typing at one location and the other would report progress…they typed an "L" and the team at the other location yelled "We got an 'L'!" The cheering continued through "O", "G", "I" and "N". They hit enter…and the computer crashed.
