Van Gogh's relatives

A few people had sent me mail to say that yesterday's mailing about the
engineer, to say that it was a true story.  Various people have claimed that
it was between Henry Ford and a mechanic, and others that it was 'Tesla'.
Another something which slipped my mind is that the mailing about the
fastest way to light a charcoal barbeque should be credited to Dave Barry.
Thanks, Jerry, for pointing this out.  Another thing is that I also have a
list I call 'The Technical Humour List'.  It's also to do with humour, but
with a bias towards computers, machinery, terms or anything which can be
termed 'Technical'.  Mailings are rather sporadic, but if you want to try it
out, then subscribe by sending a message to subscribe@pobox.com with the
words "ROSHAN TECH" in the subject (without the quotes) - Roshan
