Don't have windows??? How'd that neanderthal get in here?!? :)

Seriously, some people just assume that everyone else can support their
standards. I've been partially guilty of it too. I send all my attachments
as MIME, mainly because that's the standard in my main working environment
(win95/NT). I'm a graphic artist and web page designer. I could only do 30%
of my job in a text based environment if it came down to that (sometimes it
does). Then again, everyone I know that I send attachments to have mail
clients than can handle MIME. (I check the message headers for X-Sender
before I do) Still, that doesn't make it right to send attachments to a
list. It could have been worse. It could have come out of a "rich text" or
HTML compatible mail client. (Then all heck would break loose, Dogar, the
Many-Handed One would hand out the proper punishments, and all zeroes would
flow across the lines, as the backbones crumble from their fury! So it was
written, so it shall be!)

(Uhh, was there ever a point in this message where it was on topic? Uh oh.
Better fix that.)

So, uh, speaking of Commodores... Anyone know where I can pick up an Amiga
500 or 1000 real cheap? :)
