A Dead Moose

   Just wanted to answer your mail. It isn't every day I get a
letter from France. :-) I'm still stuck at DSH running a Banyan
Vines network.  My account at UDel finally got axed, but I have
Mail and News here via UUCP. So IRC, talk, etc., are out for now,
but the State's Internet gateway is coming up slowly, and I am
hoping to move to another job somewhere.
   Linux, eh? I'm running NetBSD, myself. I decided on it because
it is built for portability, and I may want to get a RISC box in
the future. Right now I have it running at work on a 486/33 and
at home on my new 486DX2/66. I thought I might do some hacking on
it, but I don't know if I really want to take the time to pick up
all the internals of the massive mess that is Unix.
   But as far as building a new system goes, I've decided that
necessity really is the mother of invention, and I don't have a
personal need for a new operating system right now. If I were a
grad student in computer science, I'd be more than happy to
work on such a project, but as it is I don't think I would be
able to give the project the attention it deserves. Besides, I
probably don't really have the experience I should have going
into it.
   Enough excuses? :-) Good hearing from you again.
