Well, it's a matter of principle too (yeah, I know I have strange principles :) ).

Yeah, about one minute for each e-mail I'll receive. I think I can handle that :)) . As for it being odd, well it's kind of my signature :)) . It's also a way to make it look more like a "journal" in the old sense of the word, that's to say like a paper journal. I find those electronic publications rather unappealing, and they tend to disappear without saying where they've gone (you can say I'm old-fashioned, but I'm only 26 :)) ). Christophe. Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
