Is this really from Jerry Pournelle, science fiction author and columnist
in Byte Magazine - or is someone on the net impersonating him?
(Remember moscvax, et al).

I find it hard to believe that a professional writer would put out something
like this, even to a limited public audience.  Several of the other recent
submissions from POURNE@mit-mc are similar in English quality.  Typos
are one thing, 'even yet already' is another.
