Chuckle..  Amazingly Dennis, I didn't even have to adjust (yet) kmails 
sorter, these messages were deposited in the coco folder on receipt.
You may want to see if I got double or triple subscribed as I'd sent 
responses to both emails, and on the web page contained in one of the 
previous msgs.  Once is enough (for mailing lists anyway :-) )

Its good to be back home again.  I made a lengthy post to the 
bit.listserver last night after Mike had said I was back.

Cheers, Gene

99.21% setiathome rank, not too shabby for a WV hillbilly. I lost .06% 
while I was gone, darnit!  I'll probably never get it back without 
some faster hardware though...
