Unclear on that whole email thing

Last week I got some US postal mail from some relatives. It contained printouts of their AOL email and were forwarding on to me. No handwritten note, just the printouts. Yes, they know what my email address is and have even managed to send to it before.

One of the last hurdles on the way to debian developerhood...

My AM finally sent me the 't&s' questionnaire (he wasn't checking the email account I was pinging him at)
