stolen. How can you and I, the average internet user, avoid
having all our grand ideas and website content stolen by these
heartless intenet thieves?
Come up with really horrible ideas! As a test, I propose the
following products/inventions. If all goes well, they should

insightful running commentaries, all on one disc. Why, then,
should writers be denied this flexibility?

chapters, alternate endings, stylishly designed tables of
contents, and of course - a running commentary by the authors
themselves! Check it out!

(that part of the sentence took a while to write. I wanted
to get across that the people on the ledge were alarmed, but
I also wanted to show that they were shifting about anxiously.
I couldn't just write "shifting about anxiously"
