Yeah, I've gotten them all now too. *sigh* My Gmail account and the
tigris list serve seemed to both wish to confuse me at the same time.

I'll keep it in mind. Not sure how it fits into the overall scheme of
things right now. Seth's metadata format doesn't include any kind of

Satalite servers. I actually have a python script that does some
