That's pretty much all I had to say.  Personally i'm glad you still want
to stay in that area.  It reminds me of like the first e-mail i ever
sent you, and how I though everything was so cool... learned so much by
just reading the book and trying out the different commands to see what
they do and doing my own research, learn about x100 since then, but all
build from the ideas the original LFS-HOWTO had teached me.
