Sorry about the long "Wellogix" Legality .sig
I accidently posted from my work email. (Too many things going at once.)
Won't happen again.
Also, I apologize for the "flame comment" Canned firewalls are for
Pansies. I am just frustrated with getting 20 emails a day with the
comment "Yeah! OpenBSD firewalls should be brain dead easy..."
I am a bad netizen, I let my emotions get the best of me......
The OpenBSD coders have busted their humps to produce the BEST
Unix system out there. And all people can do is complain that it is
too hard. (I am NOT an OpenBSD guru. I have been using
OpenBSD for 1+ years.)

Thanks to "Alex Holst"<a_(_at_)_Area51_(_dot_)_DK> for emailing my employer and asking
to "Please ask your employee to behave."
Alex, I am not writing this email because they want me to "apologize"
My employer likes me and trusts my opinion....
If you have a problem with me you can contact me directly...

something stupid I will just ignore the list for a while...
