Thanks for the generous offer - however:

I understand that - once my Ninja Turtle Workstation Pedestal arrives 
(the one with the Knights Landing processor in it) - I have full access 
to an Intel Development Environment.

Unfortunately, I have no time to learn yet another development platform, 
so I'll install Debian Testing on it as soon as it arrives.

After all, the only thing I need is a Fortran compiler, a key punch, and 
a beer :-)

Kind regards; hope to see you in Boulder !
