"Linux poses a real challenge for those with a taste for late-night
hacking (and/or conversations with God)."
(By Matt Welsh

Sorry about the HTML, was using Tbird, and did not realize that
it was set for that format.

I am running Mint 9, 10 and 11, found the ppa for pan, and have installed
the 0.135 release on all three.  Something I found via dumbly searching
through synaptic was that on the earlier releases, if I installed "yydecode"
I could get the multi-part jpg and others to display when downloaded.

I hope that this comes through ok, as I do not want to alienate any others.
BTW:  I may have a gmail address, but since the late 1980's and my first
exposure to usenet via a bbs with access I have NEVER top posted. ;-{

That access was via a CP/M 80 machine and accessed DAL the local
usenet server/backbone here in Dallas.  Was interesting to say the least.  Only
2000 or so newsgroups.
