Perhaps thats why I never got an ack from the recipient who had requested 
it to be sent via email, the girls mother who lives in Orlando FL.  I 
did get a thank you for the DVD'S I mailed half a dozen of to her so she 
could pass them out to the kids and her new in-laws.

I suppose the email, which at the time took much of an hour to send on 
the net connection I had then, a bad copper Verizon connection I had to 
finally terminate as I had been without a phone, but the net still 
worked as it only needs one good wire, for over 2 months total by the 
first of May that year, got routed to /dev/null someplace. I think thats 
called voting with your wallet.

Now I have a phone for about 45 minutes after a power failure, when the 
cable backup batteries are finally depleted.  That's not on site, as 
theres a 20kw nat gas fired generator that fires up about 5 seconds 
after the lights go out here. So my stuff is covered by standby power 
site wide.  The Missus has COPD, and a long loss of AC in the heat of 
the summer could finish her.  I don't like burying wives, BTDT back in 
1969 already. Stroke at 34. A good girl, I still miss her. That family 
is all gone now, cancer 2, booze 1, out of the three children she 
gleefully gave me.

You say I've had my quota of losses in that department.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
