Yes, I am indeed! The remote computer I telnet into to access my
email *is* across the Big Pond however, you're quite right about the .edu
& SUNY bit. Though the extra S is for Stony & the B for Brook. It's a
rather quaint bit of Long Island. For various complicated reasons mostly
to do with my hatred of modern web-email programmes (I use Unix Pine) and
the idiotic firewalls devised by certain unnamed university computer
support technicians here in London I find it much easier to get my email
this way than any other... And as a lot of my family are American & I've
spent a good bit of my life there & just generally am very fond of the
place I really don't mind being taken for a Yank at times :-)
I'm not a mathematician either.

Not me! I swear blind that I'm off to a bath soon & really really
won't check my email again until morning. Really. Yeah.
