      This was just an installment in some banter that's been going on since WP 3.5
      beta. Someone at WP went on a trip and set his email to auto-response,
      including emails from the beta test list, so everyone got an auto response to
      each msg posted to the list. Comments ensued. I gathered up a few and
      responded to each:

      Well, I have a list issue that could use attention.

      > I will be checking my e-mail periodically. -Ken

      Actually, I'll bet you only check it once.

      That's nothing. You should see the code he writes.

      Marsha's tough! But maybe sly too - I didn't know there were trees in Utah.

      >I, and all of the Corel WordPerfect for Macintosh team,

      Actually, _all_ of you don't want to thank _all_ of us for _all_ our comments.

      >Gee, I go visit my folks for a couple hours, and everything
      >falls apart! -Listmom

      Let a WordPerfect manager out of your _sight_ and you bet something
      will happen.

      >I've set Ken to inactive, so he won't be bothering us
      >anymore. -Listmom

      Really? Gee, we all make mistakes. I'll miss him.

      >We couldn't have done it with you [sic]. -Marsha

      Glad to hear you say that. We had fun too.

      Will the shipping version be able to open them? [Beta versions
      could not open them.]

      With the all-nighter I pulled the night before the deadline, it'll be
      awesome if I fixed more bugs than I added.

      In Ken's defense, he was probably up all night too. Everyone else was.
      But he'll be at Macworld Expo in Boston in case you want to discuss
      anything personally.

      Ken was born in Oregon. Does that count for something? (And yes, he did put in frequent all-nighters.)

          It would have to. Oregon's a great place, as much as us Washington-staters
          like to disparage it.

          When WP Orem closed, Ken went to Corel in Ottawa, didn't he? is he
          still there?

          Those are rarely good things.
