19 Great, thanks again for being extraordinarily helpful. Why do you
20 think I keep asking questions? because I like being told something is
21 broken? I want to get this thing working, and I am more than happy to
22 help out the effort. If no one will tell me what the problem is, then
23 I'm going to have a hard time fixing it. here, ready? I hereby claim
24 myself as a developer, now will you stop belittling me? I may not know
25 all that much about the problems here, but I've got time and energy
26 and I can easily put it someplace else.
