That, to borrow a phrase from a long time friend named JoAnn Dow, sucks 
dead toads thru soda straws.

There is no competing ISP available in your neck of the woods?  And do 
those posts normally subjectable to copyright carry the notice that they 

After a round with yahoo years ago, I have 2 separate sigs, one of which 
carries a copyright notice. That I've found does not seem to be capable 
of being made an auto-include in kmail, so I don't use it very often.

One can never tell when the equ of a restarant napkin scribble is 
submitted and gains a patent. Nearly 20 years ago (I am a retired Chief 
Engineer for radio and tv, mostly tv) we all got a letter from a patent 
troll announcing he had patented the then current EBS system and would 
we please forward an outrageous fee for patent infringement since it had 
gone live 20 years prior. I composed a letter in response intended to 
apply to them and to the FCC informing everybody that we had no 
intentions of paying his ransom as long as it was a system wide 
government agency mandate. Its my understanding the commission members 
each got at least one such message from every tv and radio broadcaster 
in the country.  And it still took the commission over a year to get 
that patent invalidated. Haven't heard a word since, but we all kept 
getting even more demanding letters from those jerks until then.

I was relatively polite in that I didn't say the best part of the patent 
office personell that granted that patent had run down their mothers 
leg. But I sure thought about it...  Never have been one to suffer fools 
gladly, and at 83, I'm pretty well fixed in that regard.

In any event, I hope you can find a solution that works.
