<nettime> Dutch Windows weenie sees only attachment

I'd like to thank Bruce Sterling for pointing out the "begin  " trick
to me.  I've been using "begin  %n quotation:" as my attribution line
ever since he wrote about it, and it works a charm.

Looks like "Microsoft Outlook Express" gets a little trigger-happy on
the uuencode headers.  I figure after a few years of getting illegible
attachments from Microsoft Windows weenies, turnabout is fair play
(especially when all I'm sending is ascii text!)

Check out my X-headers for some other nice e-mail DoS tricks.
