In regard to the thread about fewer women using the net and the reasons
for this:

Our lab group is fairly small (four people right now, usually no more than
six or seven) so it is not a big sample but in the group it has been the
women who have used the net for corresponding with colleagues, getting
information, and pointing out to the rest of the lab how incredibly useful
the net can be! This may not be such a smart thing to do because sometimes
the fellows pretend to be helpless and expect us to transfer files, etc.
for them -- sort of an electronic secretary! :-)
