Dear Brian and other R-developers,

I have to say that I don't understand why what I wrote should 
have caused any offence. A smile was what I was hoping for. 
You know I devote more time than I am supposed to, to support 
R and its users, in partial repayment of my immeasurable debt to 
all the Developers.  It's not much, it's sometimes misguided (I later 
discover), and my resources are severely limited, but I do try. 
I hope not to be seen as an enemy. So, if you can explain to 
me what was wrong about my tongue in cheek criticism of R's 
relying on my notoriously unreliable OS, in notoriously unreliable 
circumstances, I will indeed publicly apologise.
