Be assured that I took that as a joke, and damn near fell on the floor
laughing as a matter of fact.

Wouldn't actually care if you did. It isn't like it's my kid....

Hopefully my response that started with "Waaa/snip/aa" was taken the same
way. I was attempting to make a tongue in cheek joke that; ah hell if you
have to explain it, it wasn't funny....
Anyway, for the record, if I don't come up with non x86 hardware, I'll come
and learn something regardless. The bottom line is that it would end up
being just another run of the mil install. It can wait till the next
Installfest. Should be about time to start planning that anyway, shouldn't
