Re: [p@dirac.org: Re: [vox-tech] Questions about building my own box]



thanks richard,

that email was indeed private correspondance since i didn't want to
involve the 300+ people.  takashi's email was embarrasment enough.

i sent a letter apologizing to jay.  he took the whole thing in stride.
but really, takashi's email was so over the top that i thought it was a
joke at first.   i reached the end of the email and wondered "where's
the punchline".

i emailed takashi and he thought his email was courteous and helpful.
this wasn't the first time he flamed someone asking for help.  but this
one was really over the top!
