A suprise win for Dave, although I reckon I didn't do a bad job given I was
out of the country for the busiest period...

The list is currently open to all posters for the summer, so send your
random spam to soc-ucpo-misc@lists.cam.ac.uk if you feel like saying hi to
all the UCPO-ites :)

That's it for the summer [unless lots of spam happens], next post will be
the one I send to check for expired addresses in a week or two...

Damn, that took over three hours to write. You'd better all appreciate it ;)

David
