I think it's for clearing the sea bottom of mud and stuff in harbours so the big boats don't get all messy and stuck.

Apparently it's used for levelling huge swathes of land, hills and all.

"I hear they make good coffee makers too."

Dammit Mark, you ought to know the only coffee maker a proper IT person would have is Braun.

I've got a great powerpoint of this machine being moved across a highway. The title is "Where's my dozer" In the final pick they show this DC-9 dozer, which is a dman big bulldozer, lying on its side next to one of the shovels on the wheel. The dozer is dwarfed. Pretty cool. I'd send it to you but first would have to find a virus to infect it with.

They showed this machine on the History Channel last fall, on the "Mega Machines" show. Truly huge.

I say it on Discovery, which is a bit more apropriate.

It eats brown coal. Needs one or two powerstations to predigest the wet gloop into electrical energy but you get the idea. What's left over runs Germany.

BTW nice coat, Shark.
