Oh. I guess my memory for names is not so good. This posting first
appeared in my mailer this morning. It seems to have gotten help up in
"the Internet" for an unreasonably long time. I sort my mail by date
received. I didn't notice the sent date. (It's also got a different
Subject than the Feb 9 posting, so I think there is some evidence that
you sent two separate messages.) Why it was held up by the mail server
at phil3.ethz.ch for 2 weeks before sending on to the list is a
mystery to me, but that is what the headers are telling me.
