Hey Seymour - can you change my designation?

Seymour,

I've noticed my postings still say Editor - even though I've not been an editor for over a year now. If there is a designation of Ex-Editor then that would remove potential for confusion between myself and the real Editor Pat. Hmm... that almost sounds too much like Postman Pat... ;-)

If not, you'd better at least put me back down to a button slapper or whatever is appropriate since I'm not really an editor - even though I am going to start playing Mame games again sometime soon now that I have a more decent PC to play them on. :)

Pat.

I'm not seymour, but it's done. :)

You need to waste some time in #marp again sometime.

I would, but unfortunately I still don't have an ISP that allows IRC. :(

I was with this one ISP way back when I started using the internet... they didn't allow IRC. But I used it anyway... LOL!

And I don't think they cared either... LOL * 2!

Do they block the ports used by IRC?

Hmmm... perhaps we can arrange for seymour to open a port for IRC that's normally accepted for other protocols?

Do you know if ports are generally open and only IRC is blocked or is everything blocked and only common ports for things like HTTP and mail are open?

They block everything they can - but then they're my work not a real ISP so it's not surprising they block this type of stuff. {;-þ)

If you need it, I can open up another port on some of the servers for you.
