(from our special reporter)

In the news today, the 23rd June 1996, Gurth has stopped impersonating of
The Kumquat by returning to the ShadowRN list after a week of probably
unnoticed absense, forced upon him by a crashed hard drive. "That drive
started giving me trouble on 8 June or so, when my ShadowRN mail folder
got corrupted. The rest of the drive followed about a week later, but I
managed to save most of the important stuff that was on it, including that
ShadowRN folder," commented Gurth.

Looking from the positive side, Gurth got a brand-new hard drive out of
the crash by claiming his warranty. He went on to say "Seventeen megs of
bad clusters and probably a damaged head is not something you want to
live with, believe me. So I traded it in for a larger disc at a really
good price. Now that's all done, I have to get everything in order so I
can continue as if nothing happened. But first I've got to read these 373
ShadowRN mails that are waiting for me."

When asked why and how he had survived net-death, claimed by the renowned
Doctor Doom to be a condition that no one returns from, Gurth answered "I
wouldn't call it 'net-death', just 'net-coma'."
