Looks like my error, regards the aka. I got posted the Times posting by
Ben who was amazed at its stupidity, as there are a couple inept things
about it. I assumed the use of his name was one, since it was in what he
posted. As my turn continues to tell me to download the Times from
Compu$erve, and given the value per $ spent downloading the Times from
CI$, I have not done so in several turns. For some reason, despite my
using a normal net address, the Times is still wrapped up in CIS. As I
have too large a bill there already, I've not seen a good reason to boost it.

Which is why I depended on what Ben sent. Presumably he appended the aka
Ben to the message to make it clear that it was being ascribed to him,
and I misread it. My apology, I should have checked. All I can say is
that it was late, and as I told Barry, I'm living the life of the sleep
deprived with a newborn, and sometimes the obvious, judicious and careful
thing to do goes right past me.
