This is a good opportinity for me to reiterate a couple of things.

If mail to a member bounces, whether because you are limited in
disk space or your account is "unknown," I will summarily unsubscribe
you. Otherwise, my mailbox fills with bounces and wastes my time.
Please keep on top of your e-mail.

I update the archive when I get around to it. I'll try to get around
to it next month, but for now must spend my time on activites that
will generate revenue for me, which will in turn pay for my Internet
connection and hardware maintenance and keep this list going. As
many of you realize, I am unpaid for my efforts in tending the list,
and provide web space for list traffic also at no charge.

To give you an idea of what this task entails, today alone I received
28 bounce messages generated by the list, of types varying from
"User unknown" to "Service unavailable" to "Recipient has a
configuration error." All these suck cycles that I could be using
on more productive work.

Thank you for your consideration.
