I think 118 stands for Jan 18th which is the date when Don wrote his
message; 1211est seems to be the time. I am not sure about ids, though;
I am not sure if you can search for either Message id or date and time
by Gopher, so it seems rather tedious to dig out an old article...
(At least it is tedious for me since our connections are soooo slow :-( )
