Absolutely. Jeff has been a great help so far. Even before he
responded to my questions here I've been an active follower of his
articles on the Linux Magazine. Great stuff!

Great advice Michael! It is very much appreciated. I've been getting
such good advice on this  list that I wouldn't know what to do without
it. Advice from guys like yourself, Jeff Layton and Joe Landman have
helped me a lot and I am myself amazed at how much more (I think) I
know now than just a few months ago!

Thanks again!
