Excellent observations Andrew! *grin*

It doesn't stop there either.  Did you realize that you could put
anything you wanted in c:\cygwin\bin?  I now have added all of my wife's
recipes there and they work JUST FINE.  She just made a ginger noodle
chicken thing last night and it was DELICIOUS.  *belch*

I don't know why Charles Wilson hates recipes.  Apparently he never
eats. *smirk*

Btw, I am an unprofessional programmer so I *know what I'm doing*.  If
you want to try the experiment of moving files to c:\cygwin\bin I would
caution anyone else who wants to try this to take it slow, stay
hydrated, and, above all, don't flood it.

*right finger in ear, wiggle vigorously*
