Happy to oblige, Andy.
I've been wondering ... assuming this thread still has legs (do threads have legs? I know earwigs do ... or do they? heck, I don't know! what difference does it make how they get about? Where was I? oh, yeah...) if this thread remains active, does anyone recall an Abuzz member, John whazzisname? I don't recollect the last name. He was nearly from New Orleans, as I recall, a twin whose brother was also on Abuzz but didn't post so much as did John, unless, as was suspected by some, he and his twin were one and the same fellow.
John (in collusion with his brother) supposedly ran some sort of IT business or management consultancy, something of the sort, and he hinted (right there on Abuzz) that he was looking to hire some talent and asked if anyone was interested in applying. I told him I wasn't, but asked if he was acquainted with Mr. Ignatius J. Reilly, a well known New Orleans personality, something of a character but extremely intelligent, and who, it was my understanding, was seeking employment to match his talent. All quite serious like and apparently John accepted it as genuine, for he responded that he would make enquiries and thanked me very kindly indeed. I still chuckle when I think that I apparently got away with that one. He was good crack! ... whoever "they" were.
