Although Ned is well known to anyone who has ever popped the hood open
on his turbo Audi for the reasons other than refilling a windshield
washer reservoir, he is a relative newcomer to the list. The signature
style of his posts appears to be pure information with S/N ratio
exceeding 98db. Something many of us need to look up to.

I had a pleasure of both talking to Ned in person and riding in one of
his white rockets. It would be a pity should Ned decide that the list is
not worth his time.

Ned, I for one look forward to reading more of your posts in the future.
