I guess I accidentally selected Reply, when to the group was the preference.

Hi Michael,

As a new user to the BSD's, I am very interested in the Design and
Implementation of the FreeBSD Operating System, The, 2nd Edition.  I have
heard about this new book through one of my favorite podcasts regarding BSD.
Google is a great resource, but if you do not know, what you do not know,
then you have to rely on simply stumbling upon the hidden treasures.

Also, I would not mind upgrading my email address - fetch and install did
not work.

Thank you and the BUUG.
