But seriously yes I have to confess that in certain respects I do have 
that expectation of FreeBSD. It's not about what it can do it's about 
what people want to make it do. If I don't have ability/time/impetus to 
make it do something I accept it and I am very grateful for the 
solutions posted here.

Sorry, really OT.
