Yeahh! that's telling him, Brent, :-).
I am chagrined to be described as a "lurker on the list", but there ain't no
better way to describe me!
In that mysterious electronic world of firewalls out there, there are the
experts such as the brents, the padgetts and the smbs with their often
succinct and sometimes verbose contributions and then there are lurkers such
as jon and yours truly (do I even qualify?!).
But seriously, it has been a fascinating learning experience following the
various contributors, most of who seem very knowledgeable. Just wanted to let
all of you regular and not so regular contributors (read 'good guys') out
there know that your contributions are not in vain, not in the least, and are
much appreciated! I believe I speak for the entire domain of lurkers out
there, but true to their nature, I do not expect them to react with
correspondence of any kind.
After this brief episode of publicity, like the genuine lurker that I am, I
shall batten the hatches and re-engage the cloaking device...
Lurkers of the list, unite!
We have nothing to lose but our ignorance!
