For those of us who travel this > super-highway in a horse and buggy, this doesn't sound fun. It is true that the ogres do strange things at times. Early this morning on my home-rigged winsock/mosaic (since my office computer is too feeble to run mosaic at all), I was merrily browsing through pictures in Italy when a box suddenly popped onto my screen saying "Alert! Unexpected Heap!" and I found myself transported back to my own little computer world of Starkville, Mississippi. At least the heap didn't devour me or trap me forever. If any of you can explain to me what creature an unexpected heap is, I'd appreciate it. --Natalie (maynor[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
