Please, are we capable of having this mediated out. I know that the both
of you are understanding people. Can we please have a bit of compromise
from both of you on this issue?

There is a time and a place for this kind of rhetoric, but this with
Sarge Pending, is neither the time nor the place (nor the era) for this
kind of thing to get in the way of getting things done. There are FAR to
many things to put this energy to rather than bickering and wasting your
valuable abilities on this. Both of you are valuable to me, valuable in
such ways that I need not worry *IF* something is addressed, but in how
I could use a stopwatch to measure the swiftness with which things are

I know, silly me being a greedy little Debian user (actually that is
funny as I am not exactly little either 330#). If I need to, I'll just
sit on both of you until this is settled or at least manageable for all
parties concerned.

Sincerely, with an offer to mediate.

The phase of your hallucinations reminds me of those balmy days when the
championship mould was breeding, when the fish were long, and so were
the valued floats of men we drank through narrow straws...
