I heard this song on an NPR article about hymns and realized that this fits perfectly with how I feel about DPC:

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.


Thank you all

It's close to midnight,
And the rollover screen is lurking in the dark.
Under the update button
You see a sight that almost stops your heart

You try to file...open
But windows blue screens before you make it
You start to freeze, as DQ looks you right between the eyes
You're paralyzed

'Cause this is DQ, DQ night
And PS won't save you from the SC about to strike
You know it's DQ, DQ night
You're fighting for your life against a DQ,
DQ here tonight...

My DPC theme song seems to sound something like :Nobody knows the trouble I've seen,nobody knows my sorrow." ;)

Only a Mawg would say that. (Quite easily the best movies to get snubbed at the oscars)

just a question...was it the Todd Agnew version called "Grace Like Rain"? Man that version rocks! I think it is one of the best versions ever done.
You can hear it hear if you haven't yet...click the GRACE LIKE RAIN item

About Amazing Grace from this PBS Roots Music site.

The best known of these {songs} is Amazing Grace, a song so widespread and historically important that PBS's Bill Moyers once devoted a full hour documentary on it alone. The words to it were penned by a London man named John Newton (1725-1807), a young sailor who followed his seagoing father and served in the Royal Navy. However, he soon became involved in working on ships that transported slaves to the New World, an experience that would haunt him in later years. In 1748, after his ship almost went down in a storm, he experienced a religious conversion; he soon left the sea, and by 1758 had decided to become a preacher around Liverpool. By 1780 his reputation had grown to where he was named vicar of a major church in London. He also began to write hymns - some 280 of them - and in a book in 1779 published the first stanzas of what would become "Amazing Grace" under the title "Faith's Review and Expectation." It was well-received, and by 1789 had made its first appearance in print in America.

These early versions of the hymn, though, did not use the melody familiar to everyone today. That melody was common in early America under the name "New Britain" or sometimes titles like "Harmony Grove" and, oddly, "Amazing Grace." The authorship of the melody is lost to history, but we do know that the adapting of Newton's text to the "New Britain" melody occurred in 1855; a colorful song leader and evangelist named William Walker ("Singing Billy") put it in his widely used songbook Southern Harmony. From there it quickly became a part of hundreds of church repertoires.

The song got into an even broader range of popular culture when it became a favorite of the folk revival movement in the 1960s. It appeared in the popular film Alice's Restaurant and as a hit single by folksinger Judy Collins. Then, in 1972, the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards made a recording of it featuring bagpipes, and it became a surprise hit, both in England and the United States. The recording helped establish a tradition of pipers playing it at political or military funerals, and at the services for policeman killed in the line of duty. The song was heard often at memorials for victims in the days after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Gee thanks - Have not heard that in years and now I can hear the chorus in my head, cause I don't know the rest of the words :-)
