On  11/18/99, Michael Clark logged on  and ended up relaying this through a
little-known Microsoft open mail server to the North Korean Central

A given, it's why I write as much as I do...  Forgive me if I sounded

I appreciate the offer, I know where to write them.  If there is something

I do get very active, private e-mail would be OK if the list doesn't care
for this discussion.  I'm new to the list, very pleased that that elite
warez aren't here looking for hacking lessons...
