Hi numbertheory345,.

You're welcome! 

No, but I wish I did.  If I was 40 years longer, I'd study it, but I don't see coding in the cards for me now.  But, yes, I do try to keep up with what both Linus Torvalds and Richard Stallman are saying.  As a hobby, I try to follow where and how the Linux kernel is being used, the use of open-source software, and the FOSS movement in general. 

Thank you for commenting. ;)
