    Everyone suffers from this crap. In a year or two you will think "less
    than one an hour? What was I fussing about?". Mine is currently only
    about six an hour, though there was a time when it was over 1,000 an
    hour; now that _was_ annoying.

    Of course. But three conditions have to be in place.

    1. They have to be aware of what's happening.

    2. They have to care what's happening.

    3. They have to know how to fix it.

    Keep filtering.

    Regardless of the cause, I refuse to make horse noises. I hate sounding
    whiney, as well.
