Yea, no doubt.

Well, maybe not. If you start trying to document every odd occurence,
you make the important stuff that much harder to find. At least, I can
understand it from that perspective. I certainly don't feel strongly

I'll have to say the adventure has been informative for me, and I've
enjoyed the conversation with everybody!
