"developers! developers! developers!"

This ties in with what I've said to some of the d-w founders in
Helsinki: it's time for women to make a move to *all* the other
mailing lists and channels. I am only one of the many (male) people
whom I expect will support you. And with that I mean tell others off
for inappropriate behaviour, in public or private as appropriate, or
even flame them to hell, unless, of course, you'd like to handle
that yourself. :)

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!

for years, we have thought that a million monkeys typing at a million 
typewriters would eventually produce the complete works of shakespeare.
