    ftp.linux.org.uk and zeniv.linux.org.uk are the same box; both variants
    will work, but I prefer to use the latter in signoffs, etc.
    www.linux.org.uk is an unrelated system and I have no idea if it'll
    forward the mail sent to viro@... over to zeniv. No reason for it
    to do so...

    No idea.

    Because people are prone to masturbation? "Nation by line", my arse...
    What next? Number and ages of children[1]? What a sad bunch of wankers...

    [1] which probably _is_ a significant factor, unlike citizenship/nationality/
    whatever the hell they meant there.
