 Question: Can I save enough money by September to pay for return

 Answer: Probably not, but I can try!

On the plus side, Astoria isn't an expensive place to stay at, and in September there won't be the summer tourist rates. The airports to fly into would be Seattle or Portland.

I live nearby, perhaps an 8 hour drive. But September is quite a ways off. Anything can happen in 3 months time. If nothing prevents me, I will attend too.

http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1855.txt: " - If you are sending a reply to a message or a posting be sure you summarize the original at the top of the message, or include just enough text of the original to give a context. This will make sure readers understand when they start to read your response. Since NetNews, especially, is proliferated by distributing the postings from one host to another, it is possible to see a response to a message before seeing the original. Giving context helps everyone. But do not include the entire original!" But yes, you're sadly right.

It also helps if people remove bits of the message they are not addressing leaving only that needed to understand the message in the thread context. Of course there are circumstances where top posting and keeping all previous material in the email is a good thing. It is just that email lists such as this are not one of them. --=20 Russel. =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D Dr Russel Winder t: +44 20 7585 2200 voip: sip:russel.winder ekiga.n= et 41 Buckmaster Road m: +44 7770 465 077 xmpp: russel winder.org.uk London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk skype: russel_winder

Q. Is there more information on the Astoria seminar?

A. Yes: http://astoriaseminar.com/index.html

So which is less helpful? The answer to a question asked in the 
previous post  which requires the reader to actually read down 
ten lines, or a long digression over some nitpicking, 
do-it-my-way "netiquette" with no bearing whatsoever on the topic 
of the thread?

How about this for etiquette? If you're going to go off-topic
