    I tried the 2600 method of posting here but our nntp server seems
to be more intelligent than that.  I could have gone up to the library
to research USENET but I couldn't be bothered walking all the way
up the hill (Isn't lazyness the true sign of a hacker?).  So I
just got a copy of tin (one of our sysadmins leaves all the freeware
type stuff in a directory for everyone to see) and made a trivial
change to it.
    It seems to be posting here but I'm not sure how far
I'm getting with this method.  I'm in Australia, so if you're outside
of Aus could you send me a note to reasure me that I'm not just talking
to mayself?  Thanks much.
