     Well, I have received some additional private e-mail requests 
     about Agora status, but I've got no update.  I believe Arthur S. 
     @ W3C is the genius behind this gem, but since Agora appears to 
     be sorta volunteer inspiration, I hate being a pest.  He's kind 
     and probably a very busy guy.
     
     Perhaps some organization like IBM or MS or Sprint or YOU could 
     pick this service up (a Perl script I see), add this to their 
     Web site, and glue an ad to each e-mail'd Web page.  In fact, 
     for those of you advancing the Web server state-of-the-art, why 
     not add this to ALL Web sites?  In view of the fact that e-mail 
     DWARFS all other Internet access platforms combined worldwide 
     (from a user's point-of-view -- which is what really counts, 
     right?), this is an opportunity waiting to happen!  And, its 
     easy to limit to whatever level of gratis service+ads you want 
     to provide.
     
     Regards,
     Mark
