yes. everyone's right. richard m., sue g., bev p., (& the rest too). we
all are subject to the whims of internet traffic at any given moment.
Grant, Kent, Bob and I were able to carry on a quick dialogue yesterday...
which was a fun excercise in several areas (propaganda, miscommunication,
getting along with others, having a sense of humor).
though it's my experience that the OKState techwr-l server (and all servers
in between) tend to delay the messages a few hours. this appears the rule
and not the exception. lately we all have seen a blessing with the quick
nuff said. thanks to everyone for the excited messages. i still get a
kick out of how some of you folk are so damn predictible. oh, not to
mention the spellcheckers out there <HA!> once a editor, always a
editor.... have to love you all no matter what. reminds me of my kids
sometimes. (responding to my vocabulary ,-) C'ya 'round the block...
