Re: [vox] Ms license laugh

don't laugh so hard.  a bunch of LUGS use frontpage.  notably diablo valley
PC group's linux sig used frontpage for their website.   as rick moen.

and a WHOLE lot of users of vox use windows to read/send email to this list.
one of them even tried sending a 25MB file to the list with an attachment
called "virus.jpg".  it got bounced to me this evening.  good thing majordomo
has size limits...
