Hi James,
Your wizard address does not work, even though you use it on usenet.

Most people have no trouble reaching me at that address. Perhaps as a
known spammer my ISP filters you out when you try to mail me at the address? However, in that case it's odd that you can reach
me through my NASA address; NASA usually has much better filters than
my ISP does.

For a strategic overview you need to see;- (disabled) ;        (Ed.)

Try one of the 36K pages.
For a weapon to work effectively, only the target needs to know, that
he has been blown up. These guys know for sure.

I'm afraid I still don't understand. What's the weapon? Who's the
target? Who's using the weapon? Why is the weapon being used on the
Hi James,
six years later try this reply:-
Big Bertha is the name of a lady tramp in the cartoon series the Tramps.
It is also the name of a german artillary field piece mounted on a railway
carriage, used to bombard Paris.Big Bertha Thing is a scientific cartoon series,
some work, some don't.
It is also a siege canon, assault rifle and first aid tent. (Carafat)
The anecdotes, poems and jokes, at the end of each postings (2nd place),
started as postcards to the first aid tent. When it was attacked by
left wing moderators at university, they became assault rifle bullits.
They were then upgraded to artillary shells by the addition of pictures
of sub-atomic particles, which looked like shell holes.
(gamma, electron, proton, positron and positive.)
Some additions were part of a scientific project.
(summation, extract, pastures, moisture, features, letter, outlandish)
Mathematical - PI
Contextual in terms of battle.
(pathos, tidings, sedan, chair, tidings, pin-wheel, progress, balloon,
hacked, invite)
Scientific (spider, coil, gyro, monorail, halfrail, dwarf, burster,
uniform, lightcraft, unified, fusion.)
Collections of postings. (battle, faculty, retrenchment, redoubt,
mathematics and astronomy.)

Thank you,

Hey! I've just found out, something really interesting.
For the next three months, this conference is the only
crap-shoot in town.

So step right up and try Big Bertha, otherwise known as

Just two things;-
1. If you see someone slogging away, but doing it all wrong.
Please remember, a great effort, with no results, is worth
more than a great result with no effort. The first is purchased
at great cost and the latter, in terms of cost, is worthless.
2. If it is not broken, do not fix it. Some parts of the project
may need repairing. If you cannot fix it, with a good suggestion,
then do not take it apart, in the first place, with a bad one.
         Thank you,

There is an old joke about prisoners, who know all the old jokes,
so they gave them numbers. A new prisoner on finding out what is
going on, decides to call out a number. Nothing. Zilch. Dinada.
On querying this, he is told, that it is the way he tells them.

The parts of Big Bertha called common are based on this principle.
