Well It's nice to hear that, I feel something like that also. It's easy
to understand you and I have no trouble making my own
modifications on the mu system (unlike other "big" linux distros,
there is just too much to do so)

And it's also nice to help out you guys and gals. When I get that
gcc up and running you can expect many new nice little programs
for mu.
