Not so sure. We met almost two dozen other ur-quattro owners (and an S6 owner)
including at least one other lister (hi, Steve) on the trip.

Five. Roger, not me. And by the time he'd had the third, I was back on home
territory and no longer in need of a navigator. I got a pint of shandy in the
Robin Hood that I didn't have time to finish, and a half pint of beer in the
Plough two hours later. I seriously doubt that I reached 20mg per 100ml - the
limit is 80mg.

Obvious folly of what? The only danger with Roger is that he'll start
singing. Anything else, I can tolerate. Even his digestive tract. But if
he sings - he goes home on the bus.

And 'virtual business cards', and copies of people's entire Microsoft Mail
environments in MIME format (do these people _know_ how much of their
environment Microsoft Mail sends out?), and ASCII posts followed by the same
stuff all over again but taking twice the space in HTML, and stupid little GIFs
of envelopes in orbit. And I will _continue_ to grumble about them. I also get
irritated (but usually not to the point of posting) by plain ASCII text
messages that are marked as MIME.
But I've _never_ objected to original text, no matter how far off topic.
