Hi, All!  ========= IMPORTANT ANNOUCEMENT =========>

    Finally, PostIt! 6.0 will be posted.  I won't repeat the new features,
but they can be found in PostIt!'s header.

    It is =ESSENTIAL= that you capture the next 16 messages.  From this
now on, PostIt!'s scripts will not be able to be decoded by QuickBASIC
alone.  It will require PostIt! 6.0 to extract the file.

    The new format is so much more compact -- primarily due to the removal
of the decoder.  It was pretty wasteful to post the decoder again and again,
with every binary file.  That's why it has been incorporated into PostIt! 6.0.

    You may wonder why this release is 16 messages long.  That may sound like
much, but it isn't!  The line length has been shortened to =65= and page
length to =85=.  All that contribute to more line wrapping, thus increasing
the number of posts.  The 'real' file size of PostIt! 6.0 is only 1K bigger
than 5.1.  Why '65'?  To make sure all people will recieve PostIt! without
things being truncated.

    I really hope the complete PostIt! package reaches everybody reading this
echo.  I am excited to post my latest additions, so here it is.....
