RE: Time to get up to date?

Hi James

Thanks for that - I will try getting a digest and see if that's easier to
use.  I must admit to being quite surprised at the level of hostility to
change but then we are talking about dinosaurs and as somebody pointed out
it is called the Dinosaur Mailing List.  

There seems to be a lack of a web based forum and the only sensible one I
can find is the Bristol University Dinobase, but that does not appear to
have anything like the quality of contributors nor the flexibility of other
web forums I use that allow such mind-blowing stuff as attachments of
documents (no more "can I have the paper?") and pictures.

Maybe one day.

One good solution is to filter your list mail so it get dumped into a folder
and you don't get the posts filling up your inbox.  I do this with many
lists and find that it works well. I have a couple lists that I can read
from a web url but then I have to go there and usually won't bother.  If the
messages are filtered you know they are in your folder and you will read
them but you can do it when you really need to.
