Subject: Re: saabnet archives are bullsh*t

I'm sure murphwiz was referring to the Saabnet archive of the "" newsgroup, which is not a true representation of what appears here. I too have found people on the Saabnet bulletin boards very helpful and derived great assistance from there. I also like to think I've helped a few people there myself. I don't go there much now, though. If I'm not allowed to direct people to the (hopefully useful) stuff I've written on my website then I'm not going to write it out again.
