Sorry for the delay in replying.

Well it's not a nasty NO, but a no none the less :(.  tridge is fairly
isolated from the 'Net as a whole (no access outside ANU for example) so
it's not feasible for people to read their email there. (mutt is
installed anyway ;p)  so installing email clients isn't really
I guess that it'd be possible to read clug email if it's ever moved onto
the other PPC machines here at ANU.

In the meantime I've install multitail.  I expect most people will use
screen anyway but it doesn't look like it'll hurt to have it there :)

Yours Tony
