Hi, Tony.

I seem to be having trouble either posting to the list or 
receiving my list posts. I posted a reply yesterday and haven't 
seen it; I apologize is this is a repeat.

For some reason, I didn't receive Scott's reply. (Thanks anyway, 
Scott!) I even searched my entire account for a message from him 
and didn't see one.

I knew that! ;-) It is a little embarrassing; the "on post 23" is 
somewhat of a giveaway, isn't it? Anyway, I'm pretty sure I did 
test this using both formats at one time....

A "telnet localhost 8880" also fails. So where do we go from 
here, since it seems as though I'm the only one with this bug, or 
whatever it may be?
