??? I double checked the email I sent and it seems part of it did not end
up in the time-nuts archive.

Perhaps it did pass on in the emails to subscribers. Personally I find the
traffic on this list a bit much and disabled the email/digest. Because of
my moving around I use some webmail thingy. So I do not get the email
itself. It would be nice to have a yahoo-type webform to post on this list.
But hey, I am not complaining with all these knowledgeable people around. 

This is what I sent before of which only the first paragraph seemed to get
hope it works now. If not I will quit trying to reduce the "noise".
