So I'm wondering if anyone has tried the newfangled clothing that has been teflon treated, I'm not too familiar with it being on stuff other than pots and pans (which I don't like).

Finn ill agree with you that when it comes to pots and pans...etc. Teflon is not good but that is only because heat is being applied to it... For cooking at home ill take cast iron any day!
only for some things though, I like copper a lot it works nicely. (now if I could only afford it)
as fot the clothing I've never tried but you have peaked my interest winder

Well, I now have some cargo/fatigue type pants of silicone treated fabric, and it's pretty amazing how stain resistant it is. My knees ground into some mud and it dusted away completely a few hours later. It's water resistant, not waterproof, but it's as breatheable as regular fabric. It'll be interesting to see how durable it is.

Of course, I'd like to see it on regular baggy fatigues. The ones I have are not as loose as I'd like them- given that my legs are pretty thick compared with my waist...

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
