        of $500.  The bill passed!!! - seidl

11/15   The beginning of the end.  Apple is now selling a Mac with a 486

11/15   A multitude of whining deleted.  Go home to your mommy, please.
        \_ Excuse me? I'd *like* my home directory back, thank you.
        \_ You call that whining???  asking why the "usr2" accounts
           are screwed and not responding, while giving a "I/O Error"
           when you try to "cd" into the directory???  Boy, are some
           people on SODA assholes!!!  (just because their account is still
           there).  You're probably the one who tripped over the cable
           and said "I wonder what this is for."

11/15   Soda's sendmail IDs as "Philmail" ???
        \_ You got a problem with that?  -phillip
        \_ Ah!  A beta-tester for the Philmail-philcompress interface!
           \_ I just thought I'd take this opportunity to communicate
              how distressed I am with this concept of "philcompress".
              It really doesn't follow the ethic of philware, and
              besideswhich, it just isn't very funny (not nearly so
              funny as "philzip", which actually works, if it were
              written).              -phillip
              \_ Would you object to having philmail filter all letters
                 through philspell?  And what's the status of PhilOS?
                 \_ PhilOS will be done as soon as I get done debugging
                    philcc which, among other things, will suppport
                    approximate pointer matching.               -phillip
