Hi Mike

I trust your next CD will include a version with full orchestra and
chorus.

Sure. Only problem is I can't book the orchestra till I've finished the
Orchestral Management System!

Actually I'm a guitarist so don't get asked to do the G&S, just the noisy
Lloyd Webber, Les Mis type stuff!

Just so you know, Google Groups URLs only need the selm argument, so
this URL is equivalent:

http://groups.google.com/groups?selm....KFA%40scn.org

And there was I thinking I'd done well to get it as short as it was.
I normally end up with Google Urls that run to 4 or 5 lines.

Another bubble burst!

If you're going to use it, please post the original URL. That
accomplishes two things:

1. it preserves the original link in Google (tinyurl.com may
disappear before the Google archives).

2. it allows the reader to evaluate the target location and decide
if they want to follow it. And if the link is broken, it also gives
them the possibility of searching it out.

For Google Groups, all you really need to privide is the MessageID
(which is what the selm argument is).

That sounds the better option.

It will also never change. Remember how many of us used to have all
those collections of Deja.com links that refered to article numbers?
Well, those were specific to Deja's servers and didn't migrate to
Google, so all those links are now worthless.

MessageID is a unique property of every post to Usenet and will
always remain a part of the archive, whether it's Google or Google's
successor.
