I'd be happy to read about your exciting new coiling efforts but
there is a small glitch you should know about so I want to vent a
frustration here by way of a public service message.
The volume of listmail is tedious enough. Some members have
announced that they don't even bother looking at posts that don't
have titles of particular topical interest.
I'd like to announce that I don't bother reading posts when the writer is too
lazy to use the return key while composing. Even though my screen is
one of those larger 17 inch jobs it still is not wide enough to read the
post sent by this new fellow. This happens on occasion from other
postees as well. I use Pegasus Mail, a popular and pretty good mail program.
In order to read his post I have to hit reply, and go through editing his text by
adding my own carriage returns, then if I wish to keep the post in my computer
for future reference I have to mail it to myself through my server.
Overwhelmed, overtaxed and overloaded in Ontario,
PS, and for those of you that don't bother signing your
letters.......there will be no replies.
