Send 'em in the winter time so I can use 'em for fuel :)

Do we agree, or what?  Miracles do happen.

I can do without the "force people" stuff.  If you need to make a Debian
for dummies, just do a ln -s trick.  How do you guys think sendmail handles
all the Japanese encoding problems out there?  Nice little wrapper lets
you do different in/out decoding on an individual user basis.  No sweat.

Oh, yes.  And in the help files somewhere we'd better put:
        "You are receiving this message because you need to
         <a href="";>
         upgrade your browser</a> or have disabled JavaScript."

The part about "disabled JavaScript" is no joke.  The successful hit rate,
meaning at least some useful information can be gleaned from the page,
with Lynx seems to be dropping on a daily basis.  Honestly, can Lynx render
even half of the pages out there?  I guarantee you I will not quiver over
the incorporation of two or three complete modules running over thousands
of lines of code if we can get Lynx to read between the <script></script>.
