I'm sorry - you're absolutely right Ineiev - please forgive my oversight. I
made a fatal mistake using "open source" vs "commercial". Of course, I meant
"free software" vs "commercial". I tend toward that mistake and it's silly
that I do because I've worked for companies like Novell that capitalize on
open source all the time.

No - not at all - the only reasons I haven't gotten the online version up to
