OK. But can we abbreviate it to 'OT' , so that I can still read the whole
title without frigging about with field widths.

Yes! except, what are the chances that a valid post will start
with OT? Maybe a three letter acronym would be more appropriate?
OTP. would work. Then we'd get rid of all the "can you erase OTP
chips with xrays" posts also :)

*grin*

Shane,

The "DRIB" you found curious in one of my other posts to the list
comes from my experience with other mailing lists.  It expands to
"Don't Read If Busy" which is basically the same as "Off-Topic" but
shorter and allows for easy filtering (automatic or manual<g>).

Maybe it could be used here???

After this post, I'm going back to strictly PIC-related stuff.
