    Nope, if I'm drunk enough to send a stupid e-mail, I'd likely be asleep instead of at the computer.

    Then again I very rarely drink at all these days....http://upc.*************/uploads/smilies/spliff.gif

    Good idea, but it just seem like such a rudimentary solution. They should build in a breathalizer in the next MBP and you'd be all set.

    Maybe some people just need to change their habits, instead of depending on a program to limit potential embarrassment.
    Isn't that kind of like enabling someone to continue drinking until their butt falls out from under them every weekend? With no consequences befalling them online, I guess people will have to stick with embarrassing situations in real-life instead.

    Yay. Pass the tequila! :p
