> P.S.--Uh, what's a "Luddite"?
A Luddite is a person who resists the introduction of
technology. It comes from "a group of British workmen who,
between 1811 and 1816, rioted and destroyed textile
machinery in the belief that it would diminish
employment. [Probably after Ned Ludd(d), a late 18th
century worker who destoyed stocking frames in England.]"
