*grin* says the man who's telling us his current uptime and weather in his
mail headers? ;)
(Seriously though, I hate people who hard-wrap their lines before sending,
with a vengeance - just because they're running an 80x25 terminal doesn't
mean I am... their mails are a waste of horizontal space on my my maximised
terminal on my 20" monitor (or in the case of when i'm at work, they're a
waste of space in lookout express on my 20" monitor) ;)
