Hi Eric,

Yeah, I wasn't trying to be smart or anything, only guide Rich in the
best possible way. I've been playing with it all for years, and *I'M*
still learning =) I particularly enjoyed helping to get app_rpt
working on the RaspberryPi (which reminds me, I have to email Ramesh
and Jim) and I learned alot, and will continue to learn.

Theres some really great people on this list, and I feel honoured to
be a part of their number. Of course, thank you for accepting my inane
questions too...! =D

If we ever get off our learners permit, I guess that when they stop
bringing out new ideas - loving AllMon! Good work guys! The other
thing is, this is a volunteer effort, and together we stand, divided
we fall. I know what I'd prefer. I'm probably re-iterating old ideas,
but its important to focus on why something exists sometimes.

I'm moving onto getting app_rpt working on a Cubieboard soon, when I
pay indiegogo for two (one for my friend Carmel for her Christmas
present), and then chan_voter. I want to get AllMon running too, I
think it would be invaluable for testing and general operation of the
network. If I can vote in my workshop, I'll be a happy man...! I'll
keep the URI on the RaspberryPi, no need to hose that work, and in
time, I'll provide my disk image for the community - I even hope to
provide it back to the RPi community at large.

Of course, if I'm saying anything here that doesn't sound right, pull
me up, explain to me why it is so. But I reckon, if I can get a URI
working on RPi then I can get a Cubieboard to run a vote director. If
I can get it all running by October next year is the challenge...! =P

Thanks for your kind words Eric, its nice to know that I've helped in
some small way.

Shane.
