Daniel, please note that this copyright ONLY applies to those portions of 
the message that originated from my ancient mind driving these equally 
ancient fingers.

It has been there ever since AOL/TW tried to claim copyright over every 
message their network carries, about 3.5-4 years now IIRC, and I'll not 
be modifying it without very good reason till they (and now Yahoo too) 
modify their terms of service giving the implicit copyright back to the 
owner of that portion of the messages contents.  It really is that 
simple.  I don't personally care where, or how, what I write is archived 
and never have, but I'll not have someone taking an idea I express in one 
of these messages and go try to make his million from it.  That did 
happen once, but the medium of transmission wasn't email and it was 
probably a couple of decades before you were born.  I'm in my 7th decade 
now, and still playing with electronics, I get paid fairly well for what 
I do, broadcast engineering.  Unforch, I chose to live in small town 
america for lost of good reasons.  I do not enjoy living in 10k 
population plus locations.  Here, its no big deal if we forget to lock 
the front door when we go to bed. :)

Cheers, Gene
