Good to hear your voice again my friend.  I have not forgotten you, but 
I still haven't gotten the return of a defective power supply, so my new 
computer sits on a workbench waiting to complete.

Eberhard, I am in the middle of a project with another helper on List 
who is taking time to work through this problem.  He has already 
provided a fix for another long-standing problem.  I could not offend 
him in the middle of his work, by using someone else's solution.  I hope 
that does not offend you, or make you want to keep from helping me in 
the future.  His help of me is almost like working on a chat program, 
his answers and instruction come so fast.  I am going to save this email 
as a backup.  I hope you understand, my friend.
