Quiet evangelism? Hm...do I detect an oxymoron this way lurking? (^&
I think that I've heard from at least two people in Dallas. Maybe I
should have stopped for lunch when I was driving through in June. A 50%
growth rate per month would have looked impressive...
I suddenly crave a bumper sticker with that dear old NetBSD slogan: ``Used
by hundreds of people worldwide!''

Probably because they chopped down all of the awful logs. Strange thing,
though, I didn't know that they had any kind of timber industry down here.
Okay, I guess that I might as well go email Mason and ask for a Houston
regional list to be created. At worst, I will end up talking to myself
once a week. That sounds pretty harmless...it'll keep me off of the
``I probably don't know what I'm talking about.'' --firstname.lastname@example.org
