Sir Visser,

It would be my honour to enroll you in the BAARF party as party member # 43 if you like.

Also, if you enroll, I'll send you the whole file (33 K) which contains the story, the dialogues, and the song texts of the BAARF musical which we'll do at the Database Forum Gala Dinner on Friday night.

But only if you promise me to give me harsh critique in return!

And that goes for all you other members (or possible members) of the BAARF Party, too. Except, of course, the ones going to the Database Forum. They'll have to wait.
