Hello everyone,

In January I sent an email regarding "Slow file transfer on my LAN" to the
NSLUG mailing list and received some helpful answers (from Ian, Gregg, Herb,
J.Paul and Rich). Unfortunately I got kind of distracted and did not pursue
this any further. In particular, I did not reply to some questions and
suggestions that were made.

I want to apologize for that and emphasize that I highly appreciate(d) all
the responses from the list. The issue (slow LAN) still exists and I will
try out the various ideas that were suggested when I finally get around to
it ...
