Are we really in a position to provide support?

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.
