Thank you.  I think ;)

Not sure I remember what I thought at first.  At the time I think I
was still trying to convince myself I was a faithful Christian.  I
don't think I EVER associated Beastie with the Devil.  Maybe that's an
indication I had already filed him (Satan) and my previous faith into
the mythology drawer.  Regardless, I congratulate you on seeing past
your initial hangups. :)

You know, I was one of the more vocal opponents to any change
whatsoever.  I still seriously oppose any change, but now I'm just a
little tired of the war, and I have stepped back and recognized that
I'm NOT a real contributor, but just a user, so I really shouldn't be
such a fanatical opponent to any changes.  While I am attached to
Beastie for reasons I can't really explain at this point - not sure if
it's the because of the crazy night out with the guys or just plain
mental (emotional?) fatigue on this particular issue - I do understand
that I should really just voice my opinion as a FreeBSD user then shut
up.  That is the reason I have effectively stopped taking part in the
relevant threads - I only read your message because it is a new
thread.  Ok, overly talkative - that's certainly Sam Adams talking.
Don't mind the spelling accuracy.  I'm obsessive compulsive, and typed
every third word four times :)

'nuf said, In short, I have to agree with your last point absolutely
and completely.  *Well said*.
