[From Bruce Abbott (980627.1255 EST)]

O.K., Y'all can get back to the important stuff now . . . (;->

Installation of the new modem went smoothly and I'm back in business. When
I get some time, I may have a few comments to make about Tom's discussion of
RTP and its relationship to PCT. First, though, I gotta go mow the weeds
and observe how my body attempts to counteract high-side disturbances to my
body temperature, how this action (sweating) in turn serves to disturb
another system regulating internal stores of water, and what actions I take
to counteract that disturbance. Man, sounds like I'm gonna be busy!
