Shows you what I know, I thought you were already a developer! Good to see you formally joining. You've personally helped find a few bugs in packages I maintain, so thank you very much for your work! ~zlg -- Daniel Campbell - Gentoo Developer OpenPGP Key: 0x1EA055D6 @ hkp://keys.gnupg.net fpr: AE03 9064 AE00 053C 270C 1DE4 6F7A 9091 1EA0 55D6
