I guess you guys did go through it while I *was* sleeping. I did read
the whole thing and follow the link to get what I needed while I was
there the first time.

I didn't realize that me being playfully dramatic would rub people the
wrong way... hehe sorry about that.

  What I guess I'm really asking is how exactly could this affect MRTG
itself. I'm over in the US so any effect it will have on me would be
minimal at most but I'm just curious as to how it can affect this piece
of software (MRTG) for example. The only answers that I could think of
myself were so ridiculous that I can't see any way in which *any*
legislators could take software patents seriously.
