Thankfully my manager too understands this. Those days of fiddling around with OGSA-DAI and DQP are pretty fresh in my mind and I am sure in my colleagues too ;-)

That was one big surprise. Say "hi" to Arun on my behalf.

Sonson
Trust me it comes in handy.

I really do hope my 1001th method works. As of now, I cant see anyway in which it can.

Thanks Rajesh

Paul,
Welcome to the club. However watch out - your record isnt too far away. Going by my past R&D experience, I might beat your record pretty soon :-)

Prithi, Yesterday (the day this was posted) I was in Le Meridean to attend a Sun developer forum. Their chandliers reminded me about this post.

Thanks Enchant

Vinu
There is a saying "If I say once, its like having said 100 times". Similarly if you had tried 10 times, its equivalent to 1000 times. So dont worry.
