Desperate?  Yeah.  I never did solve the window problem, though.  Windows
tend to leak light *out* as well as in.  At least I was never desperate (or
clever) enough to read in the closet.  I've always been a night-person
trapped in a world ruled by day.  Night time was my time where I could do
what I want.  What I wanted was to read.
