    This is just too important to him really to let it go too easily...
    and with other people pulling for him too there's encouragement to
    continue... :)
    Agree. LIS it's sort of the get knocked down, OK, enough is enough I
    give up, ...no, I will not give up! and he comes back fighting.
    Yup, the funk doesn't last too long....
    He seems to come through as a lot better now his new system is being
    build: there's light at the end of the black hole!
    Um... yeah... good simile... <G>
    I took Mangling Metaphors 101 and 102!

    You mean it wasn't from Creative Metaphors 201....? ;)

    do the repair. He powered up to test and the system would usually do
    the automated BBS events -- he half-knew what they were/why occurring
    but had to wait a few minutes for them to complete. I don't have any
    auto-posts but could see where when Daryl was getting back on-line all
    the missed events would trigger and so be uploaded.
    And as I mentioned in yesterday's set of messages, apparently setting
    up ILink on his computer let another batch out to here, from Apr 18th...
    Not unusual for the mail tossers to 'get confused' and think old mail
    is new if a flag/bit isn't set or recognized. ...I've had more than a
    few times where my e-mail on Q.com (Qwest --> CenturyLink) has been re-re-re downloaded because of a change on their end. ...So a thousand and some messages later........

    But these weren't dupes... I recognized them as ones that hadn't come
    thru before... He had a few points there where the computer was
    obviously on enough for him to be able to be reading/answering mail, but
    then not able to actually send it out until later, and it stacked up
    some... ;)

    Last I mentioned anything he seemed to pretty much dismiss the
    user-only aspect.
    Not really surprising... From what I've seen, once a sysop, it gets
    into one, and never lets go... ;)
    There is something!

    Well, since it was lead by the same person teaching the Alternative Alliteration classes probably stuck in a rut!

    OK - unlike the 'modern' e-mail with Thunderbird, etc., which is
    generally done on-line and sent out immediately on completion BBS e-mail
    is generally done off-line and so uploaded all at once, so yes, can effectively pile up.
