Thank you -  that load of junk was extremely annoying.  She had no right to
post it here and I strongly support your managment of this issue.

Thanks,  Garth

PS.  I'd love some feedback on a paper I have just writen
"Immersive Virtual Environments - A Social Perspective"
Thanks in advance.

Subject: subscription renewal

Seven days is not a reasonable time limit for renewal.  Like many
members on this list, I travel frequently for concerts.  During this
tours I am often out of touch with my email.  I think a much longer
time limit like 30-60 days would be more appropriate.

After talking about Larray the other day, I took a look at it and
discovered a bug. (It would misbehave if you  asked it for more than 64
values in a list.) While I had it apart to fix the bug, I went ahead and
added type arguments. Now you can specify 10000 floats (the default), 10000
ints (or longs or lunches for that matter, I'm only checking the first
letter of the argument.) or 10000 bytes. The advantage of the byte type is
that if you really only need bytes, the object takes up one quarter of the

You can find the new improved Larray at

There are also obscure bug fixes for Llast and Lave in there. These are all
