Snagged and stored with my copy of ETKPAK. Greatly appreciated, Mr
Trembley!

(just the other day (in another forum) I read some pooh-poohing of turning
off Just This Country while keeping the rest of the world's commerce
running; I mentioned how honored I'd been by both your and Mr Yaeger's
taking my blitherings as worthy of comment and how both of you considered
yourselves to be pale images of True Giants)

Doc,

I probably qualify for the "pale image" group, but Mr. Yaeger is likely
to fall in the "True Giants" category.

I would like to read your post in that other forum. It seems that all
the usenet groups I regularly follow hardly get any new postings these
days.

Glad to see you're still posting, and I hope all is well with you and yours!

Kind regards,

I don't believe I can supply that, Mr Trembley. It is in a private forum
and promulgating it thusly would be considered in bad taste... and Heaven
knows enough of what I do already &c.

Full sentences? Multiple paragraphs? URLs that lead to More Stuff to
Read? Who has time for that, anyhow? There's a universe full of videos to
watch and respond 'that wsnt wrth it'.

Good health and long lives in return.
