explorator 16.16                                  August 4, 2013
================================================================
Editor's note: Most urls should be active for at least eight
hours from the time of publication.

For your computer's protection, Explorator is sent in plain text
and NEVER has attachments (other than the odd youtube video).
Be suspicious of any Explorator which arrives otherwise!!!

n.b. It has come to my attention that several mail carriers are
now filtering mail with lots of links (like explorator) as spam.
You might want to add Explorator to your address book or whatever
to ensure it gets through.
