I want to echo that.  Thanks a lot.  The level of expertise on this list
is very nice to see.

The so-called answers worked for me.  Maybe I mistakenly sought a
solution when I should have looked for an argument.

Geez.  I thought RTFM was part of every answer--kinda like please and
thank you.  The short answer is usually good enough for me to start on,
then I RTFM to learn the whys and wherefores.  'Course sometimes it's
the other way around and the manual gets me started and the gurus flesh
it out.

My intro to users' lists was over at Debian-users.  It doesn't take long
to figure out that you're expected to really think through your problem,
RTFM, and take Google to the limit before bringing it to the list.
There are guys over there, and here to, that literally wrote the book.
If you're ready to argue their specialties, you better have "looked it
up" in a serious manner.

>Well, thanks for nothing !!!!

Does this mean you're leaving?  You might ponder this post's sig line.
