I should point out that this is my first attempt at writing to a file at 
such a low level (I'm a C++ streams kkinda guy).  I'm not sure if I need 
further caution on the write line. Specifically, I think write may not 
always push all bytes to the file.  But given the small amount of data 
being written, I am not sure if that is an issue here.
