So do we all. What's the problem? :-?
Let's try again: I have a floppy, a CD reader, and a cd writer.

Surely there must be some reason why you're announcing this to a few
thousand people. Maybe you should share it too.

I don't know why the message is being truncated. I will attempt to finish it here. The system refuses to see these drives. It certainly saw the CD reader when I installed Linux. Help!

A double "--" at the beginning of a line indicates to the mail client that this is where the message ends.

In the long past (round about back in 1991 or so) the mail clients were not too bright and as a result messages with "--" caused a few headaches. It seems that nowadays that the software is a bit more intelligent - but, nevertheless, this could be the reason why your message(s) is/are being truncated. DON't use "--dm" as your signature when ending a message.

Ciao.

A Short Fairy Tale.

One day, long, long ago, there lived a woman who,
surprisingly, did not whine, nag, or bitch...

But this was a long time ago...

And, it was only for just one day.

The End
