25 I think you got cut off up there.  O_o
27 This is one thing about this list.  I'm always finding some tidbit of
28 info that makes something easier.  My problem, remembering it.  I
29 generally follow a thread even when I have no clue what a person is
30 talking about because it is a package that I've never even heard of. 
31 Sometimes I learn something, sometimes I might even be able to post
32 about a different view point to solve a problem.  Still, I follow about
33 every post, just in case I might find something of value or can maybe
34 help in some small way. 
36 I'm about to work on dovecote again.  It's something I'm totally
37 clueless about.  I think I got the config setup because I can start the
38 service without it puking on my keyboard.  Thing is, I have no idea what
39 to do with it after that.  I had trouble setting up Seamonkey to get my
40 emails from gmail.  I had to google and look at pics and such. 
41 Eventually my hammer found the right nail.  Thing about this list, I'll
42 get help because there is likely a lot of people on here who use
43 Dovecote and know what to do. 
45 Yep, this is a awesome list, for getting help, learning new things or
46 giving help to someone else.  What's so neat, everyone does it with a
47 healthy dose of respect, even when dealing with some strange characters,
48 like me.  Then we have Neil with his funny and sometimes odd signature
49 lines.  I like the recent one about the cannibals and the clowns.  ROFL
