I agree completely with your explanation. I tried earlier on but failed miserably. In any event "pants" is a good example but my all time favourite of this ilk is "fanny".

How strange, that was my first thought! My second was "rubber".

Play Bonny!

Talking be careful

sometimes, you have to be careful, and especially with the freeware.

at times, the freeware will be appealing and easy to get. however, watch out, because it will use your shower from time to time.

this seems nice, but then the shower will have no more hot water for you!!

on various other occasions, you will load the freeware into the ram, and then the freeware will not leave it. it will sometimes sneak away with the ram still attached and then i can never find it.

do not ever allow freeware to sleep in your bed, because sometimes this can cause holes to be burned into your sheets.

this all is, of course, quite troublesome, from time to time.

the best solution is to closely monitor freeware, especially in a microsoft windows environment or when presented with a heterogenous computing nature.

I think the OP is long gone and we've all heard more than we care to about this "freeware".
