A quick look through my mailbox sees Mike helping on issues surrounding :

  * cross-os filesystem trouble
  * iptables/netfilter
  * samba
  * spam prevention
  * X
  * routing

And I see a mail from you, where you say :

  * you are disappointed with me
  * you are bordering on disgust with me
  * you accuse me of forcing you to buy and waste 100 stamps (!)
  * you criticise me for not taking part in hobbiest journalism

How much do you pay for hosting to the lug.org.uk people ?  Or do you 
take and not give ?
