Brig. General Benjamin,
Alan,

Why Sir... that has a mighty fine ring to it! [:D]

It has been my pleasure to cross swords with you on the battlefield and I look forward to continuing our current battle once those pesky computer problems have been resolved!

God bless and the best of all things to you! <salute>
