The initial posts are very light & hard to read in the code snippets section, O venerable Father. This humble novitiate begs you to ease the strain on his eyes so worn from transcribing, and increase the contrast a bit. I'm using Gnome + Enlightenment on a FreeBSD system, and Netscape 4.7, if that makes any difference. BTW, at the risk of tempting your wrath, shouldn't it be "Abbott", as the master of a monastery is traditionally called?
