Paging Joe K:  don't Pavilion do a Schools Internet tie up?  You guys 
could probably present a paper or two about that. . .

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.
