I have been advised that the correct newspeak is double-plus-ungood, I
probably meant the Ministry of Truth (or Minitrue) and I might want to read
Orwell again. Guilty on all counts.
But even as the gin-scented tears trickle down my nose, I recall the
immortal words of Kris Kristofferson: "Free is just another word for nothing
left to charge for." I'm pretty sure I remember that correctly. ;-}
