I still remember the script was called mkq (make quote).

I thought my scripts were something that was "good enough" for VA also, but 
they stayed in use for about 1.5 years. Originally they were only supposed to 
be used for a month or two.

Your quote script beat that by a mile though, it was probably used for about 
4 years at least, heck I'd really think it was funny if VA *or* California 
Digital were using mkq to this day...I mean, I can actually see Doug using 
sed, awk, grep, emacs, and mkq once again at California Digital...:-/
