Joe, I missed reading my e-mail and NGs the past two days.  So, I just spent
four hours reading newsgroup posts and writing five short replies.  This was
after spending an eleven hour day at work and taking my son to Cub Scouts.  I
haven't been to Steve's bulletin board in a week.  No telling how much traffic
has been there. It is ALL good stuff and I get a broader perspective of issues
than my own.  But, it is hard to get involved in long, detailed threads on
complex issues when you have a regular full time job.  Just reading the posts
sometimes takes all the time I can afford to give to this.
