LATER : I did that; changed my userid and password; added
an account for Jo; and dug out the mail & smtp addresses (which
turned out to be the obvious ones) to put into Alpine.
Then I got back onto this machine. The back button on
Firefox took me back to the sign in page -- except that it now
said sign out. I clicked that, then signed in again with the new
id and pwd -- and got the white page again.
And would you believe these nogoodniks don't *offer*
usenet?? What's more, it looks like I can no longer get to Gmane,
nor news.opera.no, nor news.grc.com. Anybody got a

Death is not evil. Suffering is evil.
