Mr. Rob Ludwick,
  My rant was not pointed at you.  Sorry if it came across as I was.  I
was replying to Rob <rhbowman at gmail> who seems to have emailed the Loco
via Launchpad in some way that I am not famaliar with, and isn't this
mailing list.

Sorry my reply did not get to the proper recipient.  Again Rob Ludwick,
sorry about this confusion and I hope I did not cause you any stress
over my mistake.

Thank you,
Scott Blaydes
