introduction 5 clearing the decks

Today I am unsubscribing from most of my usual lists about genealogy and will remain off them until 2007.

For about 10 years I have been an enthusiastic user of message boards. In fact my first experience of using a modem was to dial up and browse REX the catalogue database of the Royal Library in Copenhagen.
After that I joined a FirstClass board on dial up too and became an administrator of an english language conference "The English Pub" in order to get unlimited access. A selection of usenet groups were mirrored as well as danish english was included.

Look back in DejaNews, which was off line for a year until rescued by .com
one of my first postings is here:-

Dream Voices ... for up to one hour without distraction once or twice a week so can one tap creativity in writing and painting (for example)

my debut was:

an orchestra the playing is much better in tune than any pro symphony
