No it wasn't. I've just resent it so it is (hopefully) archived.

If so then Sano can put in a link to the message I guess.


   I close my eyes, only for a moment and the moment's gone
   All my dreams, pass before my eyes a curiosity
   Dust in the wind, All we are is dust in the wind
   Don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
                  Dust in the Wind -- Kansas, Don Kirshner
