Yes, I was.  At that time, my own knowledge and experience was so limited
that I couldn't make any interesting contributions myself (some people
would claim that this is the case even today, but I know that there is
at least a small handful of amateurs who occasionally find something of
interest in my posts), but I was reading attentively.

I have learnt a lot from you during the years I have been reading this
message board, and it is not without reason that you are among the people
I thank on my home page.  Even when you are very vague about what you do,
like in the current thread, it is often sufficient to give me some new
and interesting ideas to try out.  In 99% of the cases, my ideas are
probably entirely different from what you do, but occasionally they
still happen to work.  :-)
