[lfs-support] Grateful

I decided to write this since even in my old age I like receiving 
feedback that my efforts are not in vain.

Hats off to you {,B}LFS editors, maintainers, developers and list 
supporters.  The job you do is almost insurmountable, yet you do it with 
aplomb.  The LFS book is exactly what it says it is: a "follow the 
directions exactly" learning experience to build an operation system.  
That takes work and attention to details.  Not only that, but you take 
care of broken links on the web site, e-mails not automatically going to 
those who need them--yes, I follow the list--and all sorts of other 
housekeeping chores.

But given all of this, you take the time to aid people.  I know I can be 
a pest because I like to have things "right in my mind" before I go 
ahead.  It's worse right now since I'm scouring the rust from my 
building skills.  Just this week, Ken Moffat, Bruce Dubbs and Pierre 
Labastie have taken the time to point me in the right direction so I can 
do things the way I want to.

I remember from my working days that the "trenches" can get so deep I 
wanted to "throw in the towel."  I urge you not to lose your attitudes.

Thanks to you all.
