I think it's *definitely* a YMMV proposition.  The turnaround time I see
hasn't changed that much - some days are better than others.

But I will say that, more than just a few times, I've seen Leif's replies to
posts that haven't even hit my inbox yet.  I think he must have a direct
connection to the mail server.  Must be one of those MI servlets he writes. <g>

Bob,

I think that the "hours" is the exception to the rule..usually it's a
fairly acceptable amount of time
