Yes, I know, none of that made sense to begin
with since I thought the reply was the query
and used it in the command, so that was why
I got so strange replies. Now that I get
replies that make sense, I don't care to
analyze those that came from an incorrect use
(read) of the command :)

?#1: Do people still use IM? I remember
ICQ (I Seek You; Israel 1996 [1]). Those were
good days - at least if you only remember the
good stuff!

?#2: What do you mean "all the anti-patterns of
the pre-Internet age emerge all over again." It

a service isn't something I would never do for
principal reasons, it is more like it seems
like trouble doing it practically. I mean, how
do you do it? Literally?
