Funny - back in the days of mail gateways and forwarding -- we
actually used ".ARPA" domains :-)

OK -- so here's what I found on-line -- might have other stuff stuck
away somewhere .. but, that's work to find those!

Get a load out of the "from" address eh. :-)

Subject: flushbottom with minipages

A problem for all LaTeX'perts ...We have addresses in the minipage environment,
within the two-column environment with the report style with mark both on
the top of the page.   Our problem is that the bottom of the page is *not*
flush as it should be, rather, it is jagged right after the last possible
address that could be fit in.  My presumption about flush bottom would be that
it would flush the bottom out no matter what ... even putting extra spaces with
in the address or between them would be ok ...

Are we doing something wrong or approaching it from the wrong angle??
Thanks for the time.
