My standard answer is "12 years and "x" hours/minutes".
Shuts 'em up.
re: the internet. I don't have a problem with phone companies
charging for internet use time. I think a maximum "free" time
should be set, then after that it should be charged. There are
far too many people that purchase ISP time "unlimited" and
keep their mIRC or whatever open all the time so that they
don't miss their mail by a minute. If people are tying up
a line all day, they _should_ pay.
In England, you pay by the minute for *all* calls, local or
long distance. One learns to get on, pass information, and
I'm getting on my flame proof suit now ;)
