Point taken. However, I think that the person who would listen to the  
"no need for terminal" is probably best avoiding it, and the person  
who would ignore it is the person who should. It would be "wonderful"  
if every person was comfortable with the terminal and it's usage, but  
that's not reality.

What an idea! A place to post answers one time, instead of monthly on
