    I'll be leaving for my holidays later today, so Strathspey will have to 
    take care of itself for a while. Routine business should work as usual, 
    but I will not be there to `moderate' postings by people whose `From:' 
    address does not match the one the subscriber database stores for them. 
    If you submit something and don't see it distributed later on, please 
    check whether your current address is the correct one; the Strathspey 
    Server has information on how to do this.

    ADMINISTRIVIA - wonderful portmanteau word! Did Anselm coin it, or is it 
    from a wider context?

    I believe a wider context.  It's a commonly used term here in the
    Washington, DC area.  It seems most appropriate when describing much of the
    goings on of large governmental operations.

    Not just Washington, D.C.  -  the word is pervasive throughout the 
    U.S. government, which seems to have a tremendous talent for 
    inventing new words, acronyms, and the like (not all of which are 
    as catchy and witty as "administrivia").
