Byter Steve has suggested that there be a regular Bytes item "Ask Otto" where readers can seek responses to questions asked.
I don't profess to have all the answers, or even to know where to look for answers, but I am willing to follow up any posted queries.
Anyone wanting to do so can email me at:
And congrats to Steve and his lovely lady Diane on their recent bethrothal.
Which is a good segue to a favourite story with a message for newlyweds...
A couple, just married, were in their honeymoon suite on their wedding night.
As they undressed for bed, the husband tossed his pants to his bride and said "Here put these on." She put them on and the waist was twice the size of her body.
"I can't wear your pants," she said.
"That's right," said the husband, "and don't forget it. I'm the man who wears the pants in this family!"
With that she flipped him her panties and said "Try these on."
He tried them on and could only get them on as far as his kneecaps. He said, "Hell, I can't get into your knickers."
“That's right,” she replied, “ and that's the way it's going to be until you change your attitude."
