Hi Andrew,

It was a really great fun for me to hunt for the root-cause, and I am very
satisfied I managed it. Although it was the very first time for me to do it
this way - I am an old-fashioned (and retired) programmer, from before the
era of git.
Yes, it was my private time - I've written in my initial email that this is
my home network.

I switched to the world of Linux already a couple of years ago (I am one of
the first Win10 refugees, yet before it got generally available).
I got fascinated very quickly about the Free Open Source Software idea.
I perceive it as the 8th Wonder of the World - many thousands of people
spread all over the World committed in producing a very complex piece of
software, that simply works! Then, all those pieces of software are put
together as a Server, or a Workstation, or a Network, or... the Internet.
And it all works!!! Mostly by volunteers!...

So this little effort of mine - let it be my very insufficient way of
paying my huge debts to the Big FOSS Community, with Samba Community
particularly. I still owe you a looooot :)

Thank you very much, I really appreciate your proposal, but please do not
mention anything more, just "Enthusiastic Samba User from Poland", if you
find it appropriate, of course.

Kindest Regards,
