I know I am probably one of the chatterers that clutters up the mail
list but I also like a list at this level. I am almost afraid to post
anything for fear of being blasted but will put my two cents worth in
because I don't want this list to become all chat or all techie. I like
the idea of hanging over the back fence and discussing iris with a
friend and of by the way did you know, etc. I thank Tom for leaving
this list a little more open. Nuff said.
