Well, "somebody" has had access to the MindSpring newsgroups all
along, one way or another. He had a directory called "data" on his new
web site that he thought was safe because it wasn't linked from the
main page, so he didn't password protect it. It contained, along with
some interesting Excel spreadsheets and all of his Quicken data files,
a WinWord document called "cyn1.doc" that had all the posts from the
main Stu-boy thread in it. The document was created by someone whose
Word was registered to "Larry Kruger" of Advanced Visual Systems
( I've never heard of Larry Kruger before, but a net search
says he's one of the sales directors at AVS in Massachusetts, so it's
probably just a matter of everybody illegally using a few copies of

hits on that directory from his stats file, and has password protected
