Thank you for the reference and I will be sure to check it out.

My apologies for not acknowleding the fact that it was you who posted  
professor roclin's blog entry and not him.

I was so incensed after I read what he had written, cuz he touched a  
hot button issue for me, that I finally got my nerve up to fire off a  
reply -- BTW, it is my first time posting to a listserv in 15 years or  
more and I didn't notice the email address of the sender until I was  
closing down the window that I used to read your email. In future, i  
will pay closer attention.

Again thanks, and I want you to know that I appreciate all the effort  
you, and the other regular posters, put into making liberation tech  
such a valuable resource. I am sure there are lots of lurkers like me  
that cling to your every word and use what we learn and discover to  
shape our respective areas of interest.
