Marco: My replies are distinguished
from the quotes by the lack of '>'s
between lines.
I am flitting between tv internet
and public computers at present and,
in the former, '>'s are needed to
create blank lines, and the line
length is restricted by the system.
I am contemplating installing a
computer but am finding the
gains/risk equations difficult.
