PS (yeah, yeah, I know) especially to Mr. Vandaman:  I've noticed that
a lot of your postings are fairly concise, or one might say clipped.
I gather that this is how you post, and this is not a criticism, just
an observation: most people, especially us annoying colonists,
perceive clipped as being rude, even if it is not intended to be.  An
extra word or two to soften the blow can often help.
