That is a provider of text-only usenet groups, as already stated.
I paid Astraweb.com $10 in June 2008 for 25 GB of downloads. I use that
news service exclusively, but don't really use it to download big files,
which is what you can do there. Now, today, I still have 23,712,097,568
bytes (23.71 GB) left to download. There is no expiration date. I think
that was $10 well spent. Latency, uptime and retention are all very
favorable compared to Eternal.
Suggestion: Spend $10.

Thanks, Steve. MUCH better than abpw.
Now I can see Deb's booful bench, too. I hope she's finished
finishing the inside of the bottom rails by now. ;)
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails,
admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

What happens when the board again attains equilibrium? Would seem to
me the panel likely attained the shape it is predestined to attain and
to change that you either have to stretch/compress fibers as in bending
the wood to a shape it is not currently destined to attain, or, hack at
it with a saw to force compliance as Leon said. Wood elasticity
increases with heat, hot moisture is the quickest and safest way to
increase the temperature enough to boost elasticity where permanent
destiny change can be made via force.

In the past I've had some luck with keeping the weight on for several
days after stopping the moisture treatment. That being said, I expect
that the results may be largely a function of the type of wood and its
grain structure. I know that I can bend 1/2" thick white oak into a
circle of 12" radius (after steaming) and have it stay about 320
degrees complete after it dries. The spring back is reduced even
further if I keep it clamped in a circle for 2 weeks or more.
I do not know how this wood (I suspect mahoganey, but not at all
certain) will react.
Thanks for the input. Grass is what The Furniture Doctor recommends,
but I'm hopeful that my wet towel under the blocked up panel will
accomplish something similar. No joy so far, and it's raining today,
so we'll just have to see. The rain is appreciated regardless of its
impact on my project.
