That's a little harsh...

Maybe his priority at this time is to archive some disks instead of spending his time troubleshooting his ZF setup?

Maybe he just prefers the challenge and satisfaction of building his own nuclear plant where he intimately knows every pipe and every cable even if it's not as good as the commercial versions, especially since he already has the basic plant in his basement?

Not to disparage the excellent ZF, but sometimes this is how things move forward...

I've certainly done the same thing myself on occasion when something frustrated me, whether the flaw lay with the item in question or with my thinking.
