Is that what I said? I don't recall saying anything of the sort. I do
recall asking for a time frame on when a Java update compatible with FF
3.6 would be available.

I ask because I am the one who started this thread.

I would be more then willing to donate cycles and space for testing and
bug reporting. That's going to be the extent of my contributions because
I am still getting the hang of tcsh (I'm used to bash, still some things
in tcsh that are different enough for me to get used to) and of FreeBSD
(I am new to using it also, having taken a multi-year hiatus from any
time of *Nix environment (previously Gentoo Linux)).

If any of that came across as what you are paraphrasing me (claiming to
be remembering the original post) as implying, than I really will leave.
It's a dirt-poor attitude to have toward your new users. I'm at least
making an effort to not be a n00b.

Yours In Christ,
