[rc5] IRC as primary means of communications.

     BTW: Not all mailreaders allow access to mail headers.  Lotus's 
     essentially useless mailreader doesn't let me see your headers (or let 
     me do a whole bunch of other helpful things).

Er. No.
Look at the headers in my email. I'm in Melbourne, Australia TZ=GMT+10
My POP mail server is in Santa Clara, CA, TZ=GMT-8. This mail most likely left 
my employer via a machine in Billerica, MA TZ=GMT-5. There may be more machines 
where this email got ping-ponged around.
