I did receive this message, this time is the second.  I am going to kill
and yank the response I sent to the previous mail.

Hello Robert,

The tech support script reader at comcast, after much consulting with
her supervisors, said that you need to send email to:

blacklist_comcastnet@cable.comcsat.com

Saying that you want the blacklisted IP address removed from the
blacklist.  She said it will likely take a couple of hours but that it
will be done.

Hmmm.  I am not sure what might be happening here.  I didn't change
anything about the function except to add the autoload line before the
defun.  Why should it open galeon?

For future reference, can you tell me why it is that way?  I was under
the impression that would be a string and would just be passed
verbatim.

I didn't like the functionality of it much either.  I was looking
through the info manual and saw it.  When I tried it out, I noticed it
was having the problem I listed in the other mail that it was not
showing up.  I think the problem with it now, as far as the information
it is returning, or lack thereof, is the page it fetches has probably
changed since the function was written.  I have been successful with the
weather function in the url-template package, though.

If this is something that I broke in some way, let me know and I will
try to fix it.

Thanks,
rdc
