I agree with Tim. Just maybe the several others that top-post might get
a hint as well. I'm on another list, that is supposed to be a very
professional list that top posts technical information and it is hard as
hell to recall anything that was posted. It's a damn sorry state of
affairs. But, since it is the norm of that list, I shut up. Anyone with
two grains of common sense would note very quickly that this is a bottom
posting list as per USENET rules. Who knows, some might even start
trimming their posts as well. Ric
