Hey, that was my ObHack, and not a very good one at that.  They're just
excited about it because it had to do with AOL.  Lamers, all of them.

Dang, time for another..

Today a message should start being propagated around Usenet that I sent
via port 119 to my news server on Wednesday.  It's just now going to
start propagating because I post-dated it to today.  Just a test, really,
to see if my suspicion that if you set the Date header to the future,
your message will be delayed till then and then sent, is right.

I discovered this oddity by accident when I posted a message with Date
1999, wonder if that will ever appear :)
