Ok; my last email for this thread on devel  -- my apologies for the traffic.

Matt:  thankyou much, I will take a look

John:  goodish idea, maybe a link to a .deb with Shuttleworth's
signature on the boot splash-screen? I'd like that... better yet...
all of the devels'/motus' sigs in a big .jpg or .png would be cooler.

Make it a prize not necessarily for this.. but something like a
Rosetta submission or something(!?!).
Mark Shuttleworth: read this! ^^^

Duncan:  I don't have firewire on my kubuntu machine, but a family
member does on their windows machine. I expect to copy the the mini-dv
on that machine, then ethernet it to mine (ftp/http/whatever). I'm
peripherally aware of the problems with firewire and computer
security. I'm interested to see the eventual "fix" seeing as that I'll
prolly end up with firewire eventually.

Lucas:  My mistake. Sorry for any inconvenience to the community ( 1
email times thousands(?) of readers = big time dump, I know)

Everyone:  Thanks for your time. I really appreciate it. If your
curious to see what happens, I'll post in my threads at kubuntu-user@
