Excuse me while I check my electronic mail.

Now why did I ever think that would onebox?


Oh my. I remember this doc.

When first on Usenet, I had a phrase from the beginning of a Grateful Dead song in my signature. Steve Silberman, who later wrote a book on GD culture gently explained to me why readers might get tired of any phrase, when it was posted at the end of everything I said. I deleted it and haven’t had a catchphrase signoff yet.
