Subject: Aussies in RST memory lane...
It seems appropriate to stroll down RST's memory lane during the AO, since one
of the prime movers in creating RST (out of the base in alt.tennis) was an
Aussie, Ian Rowlands.

Ian was at the time in the EE department at University of Melbourne. He
disappeared from RST (and all others newsgroups) around 1992. This might have
been just a change in ISP or employment, but Google Groups reveals no obvious
successor account. From what I see on the Web, he was still working in IT at the
University in mid-2008.

Do any of our Aussie posters know him, or perhaps someone has run into him at
the AO, and know if he's still playing the game?

Just curious, since we seem to suddenly lose so many people who seem heavily
invested in tennis...
