Oh, is that what you were trying to convey? Then I suggest that you get 
a bit more articulate and say what you want to say in the right way.

We all know that being on the "bleeding edge" has its "moments of 
excitement" - but that is not what I was conveying in my post because I 
wasn't conveying "excitement" but rather a solution to those who were 
either already running FF >#6 or were thinking about it.

Maybe yes, maybe no. All depends if you know how fast you can go and how 
to handle the fast speed.

But of course - this is "a taken".

However, it has a slightly different rendition when it comes from the 
only moderator of this list (sorry, the only *officially* listed  
moderator of this list).

Al (may I call you Al?), what is the "specific question" I asked to 
which you "gave an answer" and which I didn't like?

Please quote from my original post.

I don't know - I asked the question. Form your response I take it that 
my post is not OF.

Understandable. You cannot be expected to read every post which is 
posted in this list.

To be honest, I really don't know.

What is written here seems to depend on what you manage to read and 
decide as to its contents or on what some "list police" here report and 
complain about to (?)you or the "Council" (or whatever the correct term 
is) as happened in the case of Sounder.

Shall try and do so even though it is raining here, and the days are 
miserably sunless.

Nevertheless, I am lifted in spirits following stimulating exchanges :-) .

(I hope that you didn't "riot" too much recently :-) .

But more seriously, I hope that you weren't affected in any way by the
