Thank you.  I'm well aware that CentOS 5 is eol, and hoping to replace
this server soon.  I'm sitting here right now in heavy smoke (which has
been going on since early June) in Northern Ca, just miles from huge
fires and have spent the last 3 years rebuilding after damage in a 2015
fire.  It kind of shakes up ones life a little bit.  In the meantime,
keeping selinux enabled helps me to keep the server from getting broken
into.    Since incoming services are limited for the most part to my
userbase, I am doing very well so far.  There is no remote login access.

Thank you,
