Honestly, no problem.

Came across as a quick dismissal, as if my suggestion had no merit.

You cataloged a system inventory that was based on the maximal config  
for the machine in question, when in fact we had no system specs  
available from the OP. I contend it did make sense in context, but we  
don't have to agree. ;^)

If everyone here agreed all the time, it'd be a lot less interesting  
around here.

Again, no problems, never took it personally.
