I have to check, but it would complicate and slow down decompressing a bit. I don't know how bad it looks on a real TV. If it's not to bad, i'll better save the bytes for something useful.

Since last Friday i'm having problems getting mails from the stella list. Sometimes they arrive very delayed (up some days). And I have two addresses where the mailing list should sent me mail. The second one (not doesn't receive any mails at all since Friday. So I started forwarding from to the second address. 

Now it's getting complicated:
I received Andrew's Qb v0.06 mail only at the second address. It says that it was send on monday, and I didn't find anything about in the header. So i think it's one of the very last mails that was directly send to my second addres. 
And the same mail never arrived at Maybe the have a spam filter that doesn't like the subject?

Have fun!
