Sorry, I didn't mean that to sound at all 'I hadn't a clue what on earth 
Ven was ON about', which it may have done.  I only meant that I hadn't 
seen your message saying that you couldn't open the BC review of F&H 
Philip sent, so I didn't understand why you said Charlie had sent it to 
you.  Similarly, I knew that Charlie had sent a reply to Judith, but 
didn't see it, so wondered how Judith was replying to an invisible (I 
thought) message.  All that happened was that messages sent to the list 
while it was down posted at the time they were sent, although it was a 
day or so after that that they appeared.  The email program I'm using 
now doesn't show how many messages are coming in (as my old one did), so 
I didn't think to go searching through older mail.  Don't know why you 
didn't see Anna's message, unless you were avoiding the major spoiler 
(it was the Desert Island thread, not the Fun quiz one, btw)?

But, my, how much more interesting a time slip would have been than that 
lengthy and boring explanation!  I'm willing to claim that as what 
happened if you are.  :)
