Apology accepted.

I believe I also have penalty drinks to take :)

PS: The sig is not my fault. It is tagged on the end of every e-mail I send
out the exchange server. Since I am in a bilingual province (unfortunately)
everything has to be in French and English. Sorry :)

Ok, I stand corrected and I apologize.  I would suggest that in the future,
you mention that you did get responses.  Since it was a forward of your own
email, it seemed to be in more of a 'Thanks for nothing' tone than anything

Yes, I am calm and easy going.  But, just like everyone else, I've got times
when I can be "set off" by the least little thing.

I never said I had no time, I just said that other things take precedence. I
spend a good portion of my spare time dealing with the list and Snort in
general.  As for taking your statement out of context, as I said above, a
forward of your own email is usually a "hey, why didn't you answer this"

In dealing with user support, you _have_ to read between the lines.  :-) As
for age, never mentioned it or even thought that.  I've seen plenty of
people at all ages who were slackers.

Again, I apologize.  I read what was written and misconstrued the way you
meant your statement.

I'm off to take my penalty drinks now...  :)
