That I not be presumptuous I recognize some of those "upon who's shoulders I stand" :
NikTh, schragge, Mark Phelps, grahammechanical and DuckHook; those who hold my hand and guide my way: steeldriver, ian-weisser, mc4man, bab1 and vasa1. To name but a few. To the staff at large.
I would like to submit my application for Ubuntu Membership based on sustained forum contributions.

I thank you for your thoughtful consideration.
