I am sorry about this.  Most of the time I am in hacker mode and thus
assume that everyone reading this list is a grey haired or bearded Unix
old-timer.  Those for sure now what finger is (i.e. a quick check
whether someone is online and what his plans and projects are).

But you are right: This is a _user_ mailing list and thus I would do a
better jobs by briefly explaining such stuff.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
