    (Paris cos she's keeping lithe beyond all reasonable expectation.)

    PSI != FLEX-ES

    FLEX-ES is owned by Fundamental Software, not PSI.

    Not the magazine then...

    How can an article with the words "T3" and "loins" *not* be about the magazine?

    Mine's the one with the copy of T3 in a brown paper bag stuffed in the pocket....
