And I am English and Keith is Australian, so go figure!
p.s. 4th of July here yesterday, and my patriotic duty as an Englishman to
sow seeds of dissention amongst the colonists ;-). Actually the network link
from home to work was out so I could not see or read email yesterday, for
which my wife and son thank me.
p.p.s doing an ls -l in ftp will tell you when the files were created
which is a pretty good hint.
