I'll take it with your ack now, but I'm not adding an ack for Olof given
the vagueness of his reply in this thread.  To do so would be to invite
accusations of adding acks where none was intended, and I decided right
from the beginning of these attributations that they *must* be explicit
to avoid any possibility of confusion and ambiguity (and I said as much.)

"informal" acks are not acks.

FTTC broadband for 0.8mile line: now at 9.7Mbps down 460kbps up... slowly
