    Given the nature of this list, I can envisage circumstances where many of
    us might prefer to use an older computer, which is still adequate for
    certain tasks like keeping up with emails while on the move, but which
    won't be a serious loss in the event of an inundation.
    The computer I was using at the weekend certainly falls into that category.
    Its go faster stripes are now seriously faded, and the email reader does
    not have the option of leaving attachments. (No need to contact me, George....)
    As things stand on the Nav-L list, I have no "issue". If the list was to
    allow general uninvited attachments (effectively spam), just because some
    of us are too discourteous or lazy to find out who actually wants the
    attachments, then I certainly would have an "issue".
