Don't be sorry, be wise!  I did occasionally post it to TI-L, and in the
early days more widely on the lists, but have not done so for some time.
Your post suggests to me that maybe in future I could post a general
message from time to time telling members that a copy of the current
list (66 signed up) can be posted privately on request.

Huh?  My bank would not dream of doing this.  My name, yes, but that's

Nice one.  Here you dial 1471. Once I had someone [male] call me for no
immediately obvious reason and let loose a horrendous scream down the
wire.  I guessed it was someone I had upset recently who saw himself as
a 'black magician.'  Having been around a long time (Aaaah) the only
response he got from me was "How extraordinary."

Not directly relevant of course, but I like telling the story :-)
