Just out of curiosity, what are you talking about? Have you decided that
ADS-L is all nonsense? Since I don't get the digest, I'm not sure what you
are referring to. If you don't want to get it, why don't you just stop
getting it?

It was a digest that consisted, in its entirety, of a MIME attachment and a
message saying something like "Could not expand MIME attachment; out of
disk space". I thought that that error message had been included in my
post. (Pause to check.) Yes, the last-but-one digest in my inbox contains
my post, and this appears after my signature:

[MIME content for this item is stored in attachment $RFC822.eml.  Parsing

I certainly do NOT think that ADS-L is all nonsense (just enough of it! ;-)
\  ). I value this list and mean to stay with it. Ron, did your copy of my
post include this quote?
