Thanks Julian. The reason for freebsd-questions is because when I looked
thru isp, database, and performance, and few others, they had one or two
threads a month with barely much input. I figured I would reach more people
on this list. The reason why I didn't use freebsd-hackers is because I thought
perhaps this was somewhat trivial, like I was overlooking something, but I
guess not. Next time I'll just use that list instead. I think it would be my best bet.
