I use IBox (SSN IBX10RT60--593220 with V2.0 upgrade).  My internet 
server, Gulf Coast Internet "gulf.net", has changed its protocol to 
PPP-PAP.  IBox does not retain the PAP user information which 
precludes use of the automatic login capabilities.

I would like to know what I can do to make IBox support PAP and does 
Spry have any software enhancements that are expected to support PAP 
in the near future.

Thank you in advance.  I really like IBox.

On this Thanksgiving day, a day traditionally devoted to gross 
overcomsumption of food in general and turkey in particular, I would like 
to make a comment about contest-related nutrition.

I have followed the wide varieties of eating habits with interest but I 
would like to issue a warning about eating shaved turkey as suggested by 
KM9P.  Bill's other comments are in the mainstream of what operators who 
are serious about the "right" food are thinking, but beware of the 
turkey.  At the risk of making Bill even more effective than he already 
is, I would note that I have read several articles over the years (but 
admittedly not in scientific journals) that indicate that turkey is high 
in the amino acid, tryptophan.  Tryptophan puts you to sleep.  It is also 
found in high amounts in milk (remember the glass of warm milk before 
going to bed??).  I therefore NEVER eat turkey during or for 24 hrs before 
a contest (and I like turkey as I will prove later today).  It is said 
the reason everyone falls asleep after Thanksgiving dinner is NOT the 
boring football games but the large amount of turkey!

If you are really rolling along, you really don't need much food - I 
favor high protein, less fat (a rule I often violate) and high 
carbohydrate (which I do not eat because I don't care for it).  I have a 
serious carbon dioxide deficit, so I drink large amounts of diet soda.  I 
know everyone swears by fruit juice but it contains lots of fiber and some 
complex carbohydrates which may be less easy to digest - I don't know if 
that is such a good idea.

All of what we have read is hearsay.  Is there anyone reading this 
reflector who actually knows some nutritional principles and knows what 
might be beneficial for a sedentary sport involving intense mental 
effort.  Or to add a bit of history, what W1ATE used to eat and what 
physical regimens he followed before and during a contest -- he may have 
been the pioneer at nutritional and physical preparation for a contest.
Whatsa oldtimers??
