My sincere apologies if I have said or done anything to offend anyone. I prefer to test out new hardware after I buy it and I prefer to blank new hard drives before partitioning and writing out new file systems. Thank you to each of you for your assistance.

You didn't start the war, Mathew. It was there long before you stumbled into the battlefield. Sadly, any list with more than one participant will have issues about which people will disagree vociferously. There's probably somebody's law that states that observation... Something like, "Whenever the words 'stupid' or 'idiot' occur in a thread, there's nothing to be gained in following it beyond that point."
