It was the message you responded to. I only emphasized the H because it
seemed that you read the message and missed that James wasn't talking
about SSL.

The suggestion to look at Google first was intended to be helpful rather
than a rebuke. That's why I actually answered the part of the question
that I thought wouldn't be easy find with Google. It's reasonably
standard to expect people to try to find information (particularly
off-topic information) for themselves before coming to the group for
help. It's a lot more efficient for you and gets you a much more
thorough answer.

I apologize for appearing to be a dick. If I wanted to be a dick, I'd
have just sent you to and not answered
any part of your question.

Indeed. As I am a grad student, that would have been most embarassing.

And I do *not* recommend Googling "asshole" without SafeSearch on. *shudder*
