Hello Doug:

     While Barbara beat you to it, I'll take this
opportunity to say that I respect intellectual
property, at least as far as traditional copyright
laws go. (Please, no discussion regards DMCA) When I
suggest someone post something to the Wiki, I don't
feel I have to caution them to get appropriate
permission(s) first. Nuff said.

Thanks, Ed Kennedy
