After seeing this post I checked archie, but the only reference was at
kth.se which only carried an archive description of the source without
the source! I also checked the usual comp.sources.* but I am afraid that
the software (dated 1985) predates these sources. Does anyone know of
the location for the kafka package along with babble, insult and flame?
If all the responses are by email I will post a summary of responses.
