I'm just catching up on a week's worth of e-mail.  Did
one or more of the Elves shoot this down?  What they
say is good enough for me, but I've got an open mind
(meaning "no opinion, either way.")

#What you didn't ask, but neither did anyone else, was:

This would make sense.  When the Gift of More Time arrives
this week, a slice could be used to set up a digest.

Cron logs are your disk drive vendor's friend.  :)

Present time:  Messages sent from unsubscribed addresses are manually
approved, if they are on topic for the list.
The near future:  A list without traffic will be created here.  Subscription
to that list gets your address in a file that will be consulted before 
posting the message.  (Actually it exists now, but I'm waiting until a few weeks
after the May 4th housecleaning before rolling it out, unless Al G. is adamant
about it being needed sooner.)  It will be a good list for people reading 
the archives or list exploders to get their names on.  It will require 
for all comers, as a bit of "Bullseye Gold" (and other pork products) 
repellent.  :)

Your postings will look like "address@hidden" sent them, as they do now.
