Indeed, I have made some off-list replies in this regard.  Ultimately, cgf
maintains that web page, not me, but when the dust settles, I hope that an
appropriate expression of appreciation for your generosity is in place.

In general, I'm a bit gun shy when it comes to openly discussing financial
matters on a public list; it is a bit too easy to hurt feelings when money
doesn't change hands the way one of the two parties thought should happen.
 No offense intended, and I don't think you did anything wrong by posting
this thread here, but just a word of caution for continuing this thread
on-list without adequate thoughtfulness.
