Bravo! I want to congratulate you on a well-written, persuasive
request. You have simultaneously realized that:

1) Excessive and crude swearing is an effective way to get members of
an all volunteer mailing list to go out of their way to help you.

and

2) Giving almost no useful information about the exact problem you're
experiencing provides people with a challenge, and greatly increases
your odds of getting a useful response back.

You have created the model for everyone to follow. By all means,
please continue to provide us with such informative and well-written
questions. It's truly too bad that there aren't more posters to this
mailing list with such eloquence and maturity.

-Bill
