Impossible to aim a message when using a mailing list - more like a blunderbuss than a rifle. So no - no aiming at you involved. I was trying to help mankind in general.

I used the word 'dare' because I've been lurking here a few weeks, seen that there are many smart people here, and that was my very firstest postest. I wasn't being facetious, silly.

Well I own an Intel mac - but I'm paying it up over 2 years. I would definitely count myself as being a proud member of the above group.
