Thanks, Emufarmers. I don't own wiki.lspace.org, I'm just a user. I
don't really own any wikis or server space. I tried setting up a
MediaWiki on awardspace.com (free webspace like geocities/tripod/etc),
but it's so slow + works so poorly that I can't really use it for

Thanks also to Ittay for answering my earlier "Annotating a protected
document on a per-user, per-section basis" question. Since I don't own
wiki.lspace.org, I can't install my own extensions. The wiki owner
might install any "standard" extension on request, but probably won't
install anything experimental.

We're just a Bunch Of Regular Guys, a collective group that's trying
to understand and assimilate technology. We feel that resistance to
new ideas and technology is unwise and ultimately futile.
