Now *that* is an excellent idea. I'll have a chat with the appropriate
people, and see what can be worked out.
Internet connection, $19.95 a month. Computer, $799.95. Modem, $149.95.
Telephone line, $24.95 a month. Software, free. USENET transmission,
hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Thinking before posting, priceless.
