I think he's just trying to be funny. With success.
You're probably the first person who'se ever added "with success" after "he's just trying to be funny"
Glad to know my sense of humour isn't lost on everyone
(edit)P.S.- about the "how do I install beta 1" thing- the instructions are there, in a sticky. So yeah, it's sort of obvious. But it is pretty obvious that this is a beta... we could re-enforce that this is indeed a BETA release, in fact the first release of everything, and that there's no dipping of toes in the water, it's off the high dive or in the snack bar. (Good analogy, right?)
