There was almost zero response to the above, which were
spread over 28 days, at the rate of two days per week.
Book-burners deleted the archive of Net Access Policy
postings prior to 2nd November 1998. Bertha saved those,
with the exception of replies and published 12.
The above were also posted to the Onenet conference

speaking. Nothing, dinada, zilch, not even one line e-mail.
Fortunately it only lasted 6 days and He managed to keep himself busy.
A PPT takes 6 hours people time, 18 hours computer time. It just
