Thanks for the clarification on both points. And here, I like the
Discworld books quite a lot (just finished "Going Postal" a few weeks
ago in fact), and I didn't realize that jeeves was disappearing.
Perhaps the rest of our isolated sparc community didn't either, or
perhaps I'm the last to find these things out again. I'll give sparc a
little time to express themselves, but I'm pretty sure we'll be adding
to the Willikins list.
