Wow ... programming skill, medical skill, _and_ melodrama. You've got it
On a more serious note, unless you know something I don't, Urs, I don't
think I'm going anywhere. Now true, I have been posting to CSSM less
frequently than I used to recently, but there are a few reasons for that:
1) My duties have recently (in the past few months) changed and I've been
getting traction in my new position. They changed earlier this year, but
recently they changed again and I'm adjusting.
2) In the past few weeks, I've been particularly busy with some extra work
that's taken a lot of my time. It was particularly time-consuming over the
3) You, Brett, Peter, and everybody else (this post would be several pages
longer if I listed everybody's names that should be here) have been doing
such a great job in answering the questions that a lot of the time, I
haven't needed to respond to many postings :)

let me know ;)
Now just so you don't worry that I'm not posting for the rest of the week, I
will be out of the office for Wednesday through Friday (Thanksgiving holiday
in the United States is on Thursday) and will likely not have internet
access, but I will be back on Monday.
