Thanks, Steve,

The q-list decals sold well enough that not only has the investment been 
recouped but also Dan has received a few hundred bucks from the 
sales.  (Dan, there is still more to come - I've been procrastinating again.)

Meanwhile, I still have a few hundred left (of the original 1,000 made) and 
will send a pair to any list members  who want them  .  US$5 per pair plus 
a SASE.  These "decals" are actually cling vinyl "stickers" made of the 
same type of stuff that the monkey lads use to write your oil change 
mileage on your car.  White oval 3 inches wide by 2 inches high with a 
stylized black "Q" in the center and the q-list URL printed along the lower 
edge.  Their intended purpose is two-fold.  1. They can provide a means of 
recognizing a list member when seen on the highway.  2.  Profits will help 
a bit to defray Dan's list expenses.

If you want some, send a check plus a SASE to me at the address in my sig 
file way down below.

List members outside the US let me know and we can probably work something 
out.  My local bank doesn't seem to be able to figure out how to handle 
non-US funds.  :-(
