Here's hoping this works

In case you hadn't guessed, the reason that lepomis was disconnected
was that we've had some major security problems here.  Some sociopath
decided for some unknown reason that the Penn psych department would
be a good base of operations for his forays into breaking into other
computers.  As part of the procedures for tightening security, I
mucked around with sendmail, and I'm a little concerned that it will
be a problem...  (in fact it was.  Now I can only hope I've cured it).
If it isn't, then the list SHOULD be stable again.  However, when
satan is freely available tomorrow, people are going to be looking for
other security holes.  If anything is found, I (I mean the machine--I
can't tell you what it's like to suddenly have your electronic
doppleganger "disappeared" like mine was...) may go down again.

If this works, I'm going to re-send the message I was writing when I
got disconnected.  Maybe we can continue the discussion on color
