"With the light in our eyes it's hard to see,
holding on and on 'til we believe,
I'm not touched, but I'm aching to be,
dust to dust, dream to dream,
I want you to come walk this world with me."
HEATHER NOVA
from "Walk This World"

I'm sorry to interrupt this Table of Contents page. Hi! I'm Ricky, the Janitor. You know, the guy Larry pretends doesn't exist. Well I do exist and I really do work around here. I clean this place up. I wipe the sticky pizza cheese off the keyboards. I mop up his spilled Coke. And the big chore I'm on about now is ridding EOTU of these nasty little worms. You know; bookworms. Only these are a smaller type affectionately known as 'zine worms'. If you see one, kill it before it breeds. I've found a good old method of zine worm extermination is to whack it with a paper book. You know, one of  those old antiquated things with words and stuff in it. If you see a zine worm, whack it, even though it's inside your computer monitor. I know that sounds like you're just beating your computer with a book, and I guess basically you are, but we need to kill the zine worms before they eat everything up. And I know, if you do smash one of those bugs, the guts get smeared on the inside of your monitor (where you can't clean it) but that stuff dries and flakes off eventually. Uh oh, speaking of flaking off, here comes Larry. Gotta go!
