I have noticed that I *never* get an email response from jeff if I cc 
any of the evolt lists, but I *always* get a reply if I email him 
"privately", which leads me to suspect that his email is filtered by 
to/cc address, and anything to the evolt lists, even if cc'd to him 
directly, gets dumped into the same folder as the evolt lists, a folder 
that he ignores because he has neither the time (nor posssibly the 
inclination) to read.

The last time I spoke to him about getting this data, he was *willing* 
to do so, but unable to think of a way to "export" it from Microsoft SQL 
Server 6 to a format that would preseve the multiline text and "funny 
characters" into a format we could import into another db.  And I didn't 
(and still don't) know enough about MS SQL Server 6 to suggest a 
solution.  Maybe if we have some MS-SQL6 guru around here that can 
provide him with a simple step-by-step procedure that he can follow to 
export the data, he would be responsive to that request.

And if the export is so big it takes the form of a CD ROM... then maybe 
David Wagner can pay him a visit to sneaker-net it out of Jeff's hands, 
if he balks at snail-mailing it to us :-)
