*nod*  Back those days I opted for the fetchmail "use IPv4 localhost"
fix, to avoid a single local Received header showing an IPv6 address. :)

Thanks for the note. Although I'm not happy to see the OP used the
shotgun approach to get help...

char *t="\10pse\0r\0dtu\0. at ghno\x4e\xc8\x79\xf4\xab\x51\x8a\x10\xf4\xf4\xc4";
main(){ char h,m=h=*t++,*x=t+2*h,c,i,l=*x,s=0; for (i=0;i<l;i++){ i%8? c<<=1:
(c=*++x); c&128 && (s+=h); if (!(h>>=1)||!t[s+h]){ putchar(t[s]);h=m;s=0; }}}
