Count, glad you like it! There's lots of good stuff to come. Java- I understand that you're busy and all. 12 hours shifts and tropical storms and all doesn't sound like fun. I just thought that you didn't like it. But I'm glad that you do! Just a side not to everyone who read this from here on out: there's a lot of stuff in this story that is autobiographical. I'll tell you what when we get there. But for now, I just wanted you guys to know. Now then, on to chapter 7!
