Actually, better than normal. I just like to speak my mind - that's 
why they keep me away from customers at work except when dealing with 
strictly technical matters !

But what I wrote is a fairly accurate statement. If someone cannot 
figure out that the DHCP protocol requires a device to stop using an 
address once the lease runs out then they shouldn't be writing code 
(or writing the spec) for anything.
