We must fight spam for the same reason we fight crime: not because we are naive enough to believe that we will ever stamp it out, but because we do not want the kind of world that results when no one stands against crime.  - Geoffrey Welsh

Date: Tue, 1 Jan 2013 00:00:19 -0000 From: Telecom Digest Moderator <redacted@invalid.telecom.csail.mit.edu> To: telecomdigestmoderator.remove-this@and-this-too.telecom-digest.org. Subject: Happy New Year Message-ID: <20130101033653.GA12257@telecom.csail.mit.edu> Another year has come and gone, and I'll take this opportunity to thank you all for your support and your contributions during 2012. I'll add a special thanks to John Levine, who has provided the Telecom Digest with invaluable help and support for many years, and to Robert Bonomi, who wrote our day-to-day processing scripts, and kept the Digest running while I was in Montana last summer. As I write this, the new year has just started in Greenwich, England, so it's now 2013 in Greenwich Mean Time. I have a few things that come to mind, off the top of my head. 1. I don't care if it's called "UTC" now. It's "GMT" to me. 2. I can't believe that I got to be this old. I was going to live fast, die young, and leave a good looking corpse, but it looks like I'll only get one out of three. It sure seems fast, looking back. 3. If we can put a man on the moon, why can't we make a cellular battery that lasts for the whole day? 4. Why doesn't Jon Postel get credit for inventing the Internet, instead of Al Gore? Sigh. Well, enough of that: I hope you and yours have all the best of 2013. Bill -- Bill Horne Moderator
