When I said "one of these people" here I didn't necessarily mean the EMPEG
car people. I read a lot of Linux related material, and I just don't

Issue 14 of Empeg's newsletter came out in February. I was subscribed to it
while living in Germany but that address is not forwarded, hence I didn't
see that issue. Obviously I wasn't the only one wondering about this.
