Hi John
 You seem to miss the point. These post do not seem to
be coming from people that are actually looking for help
or anything related to classic computers. I have responded
to about ten of these before giving up. I all ten cases,
I did not receive one reply, even though I offered to
provide the help or information they requested.
 This leads me to believe that these are not just honest
post from fellow computer people but some form of
address mining operation. I could be wrong but I still
waiting to see.
