Sure, i would love to.. (once the accidental feature gets accepted as
a bug, will prioritize regression testing it :-)

Right now i am hanging on to the *minute* hand of the walled clock
while *hours* go by!

that day accidentally deleted gfxterm from /boot partition where it
was already residing, so now have to start all over again...
waiting for more system related bugs to show up so that maintenance
can be scheduled!  :-)
१. Stupid question always warrants a stupid answer!
२. No question is ever stupid!
