Sounds fine to me.  That way everyone can see what slackers the rest of 
us are compared to Dirk. ;)

A quick related question for Dirk:  I noticed that most of the changes 
to the "history" file are by you, do you want contributers to update the 
file as they fix things, or do you prefer to add to it yourself?
