No insult at all. If you want to reread really 'rude' postings, I can send
you some that are very recents, but I cannot beleive you missed it for
known reasons.

Indeed they are. An thanks to people that send interesting ones and I
agreed that some really help for kernel development. But the remark above
would not, unless my english is a lot worse that I think, and I considered
this posting as very offending. Probably my sense of humor is very
