Message:

doc/manual.sgml: Remove out of date postal addresses - we can
probably safely assume people have email these days. Direct
people to the mailing list since they are likely to get a
quicker response rather than mailing individuals. Remove
mention of a paper mailing list. Remove mention of sending
us a floppy (!) or blank CDR to get a version as I can't recall
the last time I gave someone a copy on physical media.

    3488 <Para>We have both email and paper mailing lists for &survexsuite;, to
    3489 keep users informed of new versions and so forth.  This is available free
    3490 by e-mail, or by post for a small charge (to cover photocopying, disks,
    3491 and postage). We recommend you register to receive automatic updates
    3492 and other information.

    3507 <Para>Aven is built on &wxwidgets;, which means that can easily support
    3508 Unix, Microsoft Windows, and MacOS X.  MacOS 9 support is possible, but
    3509 requires somebody with MacOS 9 and a compiler to build it with.
    3510 Support for &msdos; is possible if there's sufficient interest.
    3511 Support for &riscos; is unlikely unless someone very enthusiastic steps
    3512 forward to do the porting work.</Para>

    3526 <Para>If you want the latest version and don't have net access, please
    3527 enclose a suitably formatted floppy and an SAE.  These days, we'd probably
    3528 struggle to cope with anything other than 3.5" floppies.  &msdos; format is
    3529 easiest for us.  Alternatively, send a blank CDR and we can burn you a
    3530 CD with all the versions on.</Para>
