Yes, yes, I know. You mean me (among a few others). I'd love to be there
and tell you guys all about my thread-following code and the enhanced
subject-line listing features and schemes for implementing hypertext-style
filter-by-link. Abd I'd love to hear about good new design ideas.
Unfortunately, working on TMNN and my recent hardware troubles have left
me in a bad hole -- I can't *afford* USENIX. Even the bloody *plane fare*
would sink me. Unless you can get the conference organizers to scholarship
me, I'm not gonna be there. Sigh...
