Don't mind my mucking about - just thought this branch deserved to be its own tree so I got my hands dirty and did some gardening.

Thanks for posting that, John! Newsletters really are fun to read - too bad they're so much work to put together.

Wow ... those were the days, eh? I didn't arrive on CIS until the WinCIM and OLR days so 'terminal mode' always struck fear into my heart. (My husband, however, was tapping away from the very early days.) The notion of conferencing sans interface boggles my mind.

Good grief! That woman on page 2 is the spitting image of me right now!

Too true! It was Elyse who greeted the courier in a pair of tatty pyjamas, not me. I was the one who greeted a courier in a bath towel. Now that thread was a long time ago... I doubt if the towel would cover enough of me these days, my shape having changed to match the cartoon.

I keep my workout pants within handy reach so that I can always throw them and a t-shirt on before I open the door for the courier. But that doesn't mean a brush has touched my hair - and the slippers on the feet probably prevent me from fooling anyone. <g>

I'm sure nothing much fools couriers. <g> The day I wore the towel, I'd been in the shower and he'd already been waiting a while when I appeared. The couriers here seem to sort their cargo so as to visit the work-from-homers first, knowing they'll be there well before eight, and then do their shop/office people after opening time.

As I think I mentioned at the time, the word got around, and I had very good service from all the couriers for some time thereafter. Sometimes with a commen about not wearing a towel. <g>

Indeed...one thing that is very interesting is the reference to using "GA" to let someone know that you are finished "speaking"...

This is used by the deaf when using the relay via a TTY/TDD--still in use...wonder who originated it?
