Hi Karl, hi all!

I am back from several conferences and have built in a new hard disk
into my laptop were I am working on, so now I can do some things again.

Ok, I have done the following:

\texttt{preining at logic.at}

and then pdflatex bla.tex and I get: 

 ) </usr/TeX/texmf-var/fonts/pk/ljfour/jknappen/ec/ecrm1095.600pk

So the same problem is still going on, but a bit different. 
I guess there should be some pfb fonts for this, or not?

TYNE and WEAR (nouns)
The 'Tyne' is the small priceless or vital object accidentally dropped
on the floor (e.g. diamond tie clip, contact lens) and the 'wear' is
the large immovable object (e.g. Welsh dresser, car-crusher) that it
shelters under.
