    Anyone else hear from Chip, or is this some...

    ...kind of spam. It was indeed his e-mail address, but I think it's the latter. Some other RR members were included in the e-mail and I can't for the life of me believe this is really from him, based on all the typos and errors in syntax. Check it out;
