ye-gods! SVN? is that like CVS? I do know "RCS" well enough
to track _my own_ revisions. CVS? just Barely. it's the CVS
kin utilities where I *really* go off the rails. :-) I got
in trouble at work trying to keep my perl OS tests in sync.
iv'e been graced with enough patience that I can wait several
billionths/sec to get the latest deltas [&c], thank you.

could this have anything to do with my having quit my
subscriptions to the -questions list?? when my systems admin
flew up last year he moved my registrar from GKG.net to a
registrar I had never heard of. godaddy.[com|net]. godaddy
ignored all my DNS and BIND files and used they own automated
scripts. usually mail works; sometimes it takes around 25-30
seconds to go out. The rest of the time--very rarely--the
godaddy mail handling hangs.
has anybody else on this list seen this kind of behavior with
godaddy? I'll ask my sysadmin. send him the pertinent parts
of this mail.
