Sorry, please disregard the message above. It was trapped, in the queue,
when my laptop hibernated during a power-cut. It flew away, unnoticed,
when I revisited the same laptop, during another power-cut, today.

OT: I live in Ghana, where normally the power supply only marginally
exceeds the demand. Recently, pirates attacked a vessel, off the West
African coast at Lomé and, in its efforts to escape capture, the vessel
dragged its anchor across the undersea pipeline, which conveys gas from
Nigeria to Ghana. The pipeline is now under repair. Meanwhile, Ghana has
lost about 20% of its power generation capacity, hence we have many
scheduled (and some unscheduled) power outages. At least the weather is
bright and sunny!
