You apparently didn't see the smiley I left out of the last sentence....  :-)
I didn't mean it to be rude at all - no tone implied.  I just noticed
that you have posted several times to the list and all of them, until
now, were top posts, unlike almost everyone else.  I /was/ trying to
be nice....

Yes, I've been reading the thread.  I you didn't mention GFS in the
specific post to which I was replying, but you're right, it's there in
prior posts.  So all of my commentary about XFS does not apply to your
post.  Non-sequitur - mea culpa.  :-)

It was intended to be a gentle reminder.  (You've obviously never seen
me lecture....)

You seem awfully touchy here - are you sure you're not lecturing me?  :-)

Take a breath, relax, you were not under attack, lecture or anything
rude.  I meant it with the best of intentions - I usually do.
