Good choice. It hasn't shown up on my news server yet.

On a side note, I was amused by a coincidental story in the news
about John Walker Lindh, the American Taliban. A reporter Googled
Lindh and discovered Usenet postings going back to 1995. The
reported described Usenet to his readers this way:

"The wild and woolly Usenet subculture ... resembles a global,
secret society for people who hold very strong opinions and derive
intense pleasure from arguing with one another."

LOL.
