I don't know if we will ever get all of the stuff back.  My congrats  
to Roger for the outstanding dedication to getting this as far as he  
has.  I know that I posted quite frequently on Delphi in the late  
80's.  There was a goodly amount of "social" chatter that occurred in  
those days, just as now, and I'm hoping that a lot more of the OT  
stuff will show up.  Yes, at the time the OT stuff is posted it may  
tend to irritate the very serious among us, but looking back a decade  
or more, some of it is hilarious, and it provides a peek into our  
quirks and foibles.  Or maybe that is a reason why some people would  
prefer it never again sees the light of day??  %^D  Ever look back at  
the old photos of folks you know in tie-dyed T-shirts and leisure  
suits?  The emails are literary photographs.

Good work, Roger.  I certainly have no complaints about your efforts.
