Yah know, Timothy, yer bedside manner is not one to encourage people to say,
"Let me help this fella".  No one owes anyone anything here.  I sometimes
thing Craig is really tweny people.  What he does is amazing.  But, having
been on this list for a long time, I can tell you that if you do your
homework, and you approach people in  a civil way, you will get the answer
to any question.  I am sure you cannot say who it is that "owes you
something" here.  Sometimes it is all gravy.  That is here, and that is now.
