Thanks for stepping up and letting us all know that you've bitten off more
than you can chew. Having been in your shoes before, I know it's not always
easy to let people know that you've overcommitted, but it's the Right Thing
to do, and we really appreciate it.

A big part of successful Open Source projects is how good we all are at
communicating, and I hope the rest of us measure up well against the
standard you've set.

It's much better to know what's happening than to keep hoping and waiting
for something that never does.

Great. Once you've got Linux installed, we'll be looking forward to
whatever level of coding help you're ready to tackle. As you've realized
from looking at the code, there's still plenty of work to go around. :-)
