Sorry. I really thought the group was dead. My newsreader showed no
messages. (I think I was too slow on my double-click.) So then I decided to
play with the thing we are not supposed to speak about.
In the dim past, (when I cared for a herd of lusers), I used to post here
when most dialup ISPs provided an NNTP service. When I was forced to move
to one that did not, I lurked in miserable loneliness until I think I had a
motherboard fail, and it was so long before I found a newfangled 32 bit
newsreader that I forgot all about ASR.
Hopefully, my next post will be on-topic. Finding myself in want of some
loose cash, I applied on a network management job yesterday. That got me
reminiscing about the group and I could not resist checking if it was still
active. Just looking at the header dates shows that if it is not dead,
someone should call a priest just in case.
