I think it would have been more effective to place a list of product
names in STATUS and let people vote for the ones they like, dislike,
or don't care.  That way we wouldn't be limited to the list you gave.

I've been too busy this month to care -- I came back from vacation to
find that our entire office needs to move down the street within the
next three weeks and the new office needs power, phones, network wires,
and all that other stuff designed and installed before move-in.
