I was tired and prolly misinterpreted your tone.  But there IS this 
safeguard....I have an opinion on EVERYTHING~ lol. And sadly, I am NOT 
shy in sharing it.  But this forum is healthy for me; I respect evryone 
here so much with regard to the audio contributions, that I do tend to 
watch my "p's n q's" so as not to come of like more of an a$$hole than I 
already am! :)

Cheers & have a good day.

P.S.  Will be in Santa Clara tommorrow afternoon!  Satrbux is on me if 
your around! :)
