If I did, and that wasn't another person shooting an unnecessary snide remark at me on an online forum, I will be happy to apologize.

Accepted.

Since I suggested getting a USB disk drive earlier in this thread, I was simply agreeing that that decision made a lot of sense for you.

On top of everything else an External Optical Drive is awfully handy to have around. Since I don't work on anyone's PC anymore my needs are simple.

Most of my use of Flash is for data. I need to revisit the LiveUSB tool (along with the Manual) again. My crude skills can make for a lot of frustration. That and Life can keep me busier than I would have thought possible.
Yes, even I am dishonest. Not in many ways, but in some. Forty-one, I think it is.
