Please accept my sincerest apologies for overreacting and being so touchy. 
I have no acceptable excuse for it:-( I'm just jittery because my son is in 
the USAF and I want to see him safe and don't want to inadvertently create 
a problem for him.

Yes that's true. EULA's must be the most arcane (deliberately?) obfuscated 
documents in computerdom. I figure that I wrote a lot of crap during the 
years that I was a technical writer at Microsoft but never anything as bad 
as a EULA! That level of drivel is reserved strictly for legal departments.
