  Apparently I didn't fret long enough, because after all that I managed
to misreply and quote the wrong person.  Those of you who are thinking
quicker than I -- which is probably everyone, this time around -- will
no doubt realize that this:

"...been said so far is your line about..."

  ...should have been:

"...been said so far is Thaddeus' line about..."

  Sorry about that, Thomas; if it's any consolation, I've been writing
emails for around 15 years now and you're the first person I've ever
misquoted.  There goes my perfect record...  :P

  John  ! Since this email isn't signed, you can't really tell it's from
 Buttery! me; I'll hopefully have my computer working normally again
www.io.c! soon, but until then...gotta love catastrophic drive failure.
om/~john! Mmm, rdiff-backup to the rescue!
