The one node refusing to send the doc, and the other note receiving it
anyway, cracked me the *** up! Thanks

P.S. the Google April Fool's actually got me thinking (network via
plumbing). Water conducts acoustics real well. So a free peer-to-peer
network within a city, or some counties, would be easy and require no new
infrastructure. I imagine the bandwidth would be weak and certainly there'd
be a problem getting between cities, but I don't think the water and sewer
utiltiies claim rights to the acoustic bandwidth (unlike hijacking phone
lines with stuff that would interfere with existing telephony) so all free.
