Steve, I realize that time is short & that you have much to do.
And I dislike adding to your burden, but:
Please trim your posts.
In the one cited above, more than 150 lines -- six full screens! --
could have been omitted without loss.
Trimming will give you practice in using an editor. (I recommend vi.)
Trimming forces review of the topic & discussion thereof.
Short posts attract readers; long posts encourage them to skip on to
the next thing. (We're all in hurry.)
In short, brevity will help others help you.
