Fwd: VAX mail shut down.

Daniel sent this to the list, but it got rejected because of a suspicious
address -- he sent it as root -- and landed in my mail. So I'm resending it.

I thought it best to take his address out of the message, so it wouldn't get
harvested for spam. To contact him, replace "minako" by "bony" and replace
"system" by "root".
