Hi Brian and everyone in FS list,

Believe or not in some countries FAX is legal document in court and email is
not. As a tech guy I hate faxing but I live in world full with lawyer and
again because I am tech person when faxing is broken I have problems :(

P.S. This is just an opinion and not related to this lovely project ;)
