I must also confess to having held up approval of Andrew's post from a 
non-list address for at least 5 days while I moved house and recovered 
from it. My normal response time for such is about 1 day. Expressions 
of interest from responsible co-moderators welcome. Duties involve 
hand-killing about 15 spam a day and forwarding about one bona fide 
message a month (up from last year's one-a-quarter).

Telstra also dallied with moving my DSL because their techs are all flat 
out keeping up with sheep-for-the-slaughter signing up on their cheap 
200MB/month 19c/MB-both-ways "cheap" DSL accounts.

Cheers; Leon
