Hello? Is there anyone on the automake mailing list that actually cares to answer bug reports? The effort I've made to get Michael Louka's dxf2vrml program running with a ./configure script wasn't nearly as difficult as getting anyone on the automake mailinglist to respond to the strange behavior I'm seeing on GNU Darwin systems...

If noone knows or cares, that's great -- just say so! I know my email is working. I know I'm not getting my messages bounced back to me. I also know I'm not getting any response. I don't grok Perl, and I've tried to understand the appropriate sections of code. This is frustrating.

Southwestern Bell Internet Services uses automated email responses. Be warned. Sometime during my last trip into the wilds of North Carolina, my news server access went away. Which bites. I sent support@scbglobal.net a nice email asking which news server I should tag for my usenet feed. I got back a cut-and-pasted response about restarting Microsoft Outlook. GNU Emacs / Gnus doesn't have the problems listed in the email... (I wouldn't use them if they did.)

On the upside, I'm home again. The robot I was sent to get going is happily stacking boxes. I've recently started looking at finishing my application of the RuneQuest role-playing rules to the Traveller science fiction universe. I just might start gaming again after a 6 year sabbatical. This could be fun--
