Thanks for the chortle in the AM here in IA.  My apologies for not 
sending a note of appreciation last night.  I immediately logged into 
Unix v7 as dmr and played around for a bit.  (no idea how to break out 
of the spell command without any arguments, but that's my bad).  I'm a 
CISO equivalent in my day job, and I didn't see any issue with your 
initial email.
