Thanks for the compliment. I'm not related to Emory. I'm just a simple
technician.

I've been on the Fedora list for a long while and expect to remain on
it. I've been somewhat undiplomatic at times but I eventually learned to
shy away from flame wars and not get involved. The real satisfaction for
me is often the learning process I go through when implementing the
advice I'm given here by others, and I finish feeling one step  closer
to having expertise.
