10:52:58 PM michael: @spud: gentlemen, start your parentheses!
10:59:10 PM spud: "Arc only supports Ascii. I realize that supporting only Ascii is uninternational to a point that's almost offensive ... But the kind of people who would be offended by that wouldn't like Arc anyway." Well, now I don't like it... shesh!
