**The Best of Richard Lynch**
Remember the classics such as
- Microsoft Sucks, Microsoft Sucks!
- Can't moveFirst in an Empty Record Set
- Boolean Expressions Don't Short-Circuit
and the ever classic
- ASP, I Think It's Giving Me Cancer of the Rectum
And for a limited time, we'll include documentation that leaves out most
