some things, the first not relaleted to this

1) I know steve b is out of the office for a while. doubtful he'll be
back too soon. he has a life.

2) I have precious little clue about surround settings. I only know my
stereo could go up against Lucifer on just the first of the vitual
theater settings, and I am still so amazed at the coolest thing I have
ever encountered next to HW, I can't be bothered actually adjusting it
yet, or even trying the "b" and "c" versions of it :)
So in others words.....anyone with an actual brain needed!!

3) please don't punish me. I will get a handle on myself again I know
I have cluttered the forum it it is depressing for me
