PLEASE READ AND SAVE!!

There was another rash of bad addresses this weekend, so I am circulating
relevant portions of the welcome message that you all received when you
joined the list. When the list was small, it was easy to deal with the few
requests for subscription and other information from those new to
listservers and therefore unfamiliar with the need to save messages like
this for future reference. But the list has grown and is now quite active.
So to ease the growing task of looking after this list, it would be very
helpful if you keep this note and use it when you change addresses.

BEFORE you change your e-mail address PLEASE unsubscribe from all lists.
Then re-subscribe using your new address. If you do not do this the list
manager must verify wait several days to verify that the e-mail address is
incorrect during which time the number of messages doubles.

Also, if you are going away for several weeks, make sure that you have
enough e-mail storage. One user on this list had a full mailbox for 6 weeks
this summer. All his messages from apstat-l were returned to me during that
time.

Please help to keep the task of rununng this list down to a minimum, and
once again, if there is anyone on the list who would care to take over
running an apstat-l list, please let me know. I started this when I was
fully expecting to teach AP Statistics in Burnaby. But my new position has
removed that possibility for good!!!


WELCOME TO APSTAT-L
(....)

Now here are a few "housekeeping" items that you should file somewhere
for later reference.

TO SEND A MESSAGE TO EVERYONE ON THE LIST

A listserver is an automatic message redistribution centre. People who
have joined the list may send a message to every other member of the list
simply by sending that message to the CLN computer. Our computer
redistributes that message to everyone's e-mail box. Here's the way to
send a message to the list. Note that this e-mail message is just like
every other e-mail message you send, namely: put in an address, include a
descriptive subject line, write your message, and sign it.

Send your message to: apstat-l@etc.bc.ca

TO SUBSCRIBE/UNSUBSCRIBE FROM THE LIST

You can subscribe/unsubscribe by sending an email message to:
majordomo@etc.bc.ca

Leave the topic line blank. In the body of the message, enter one of these:

subscribe apstat-l <your email address)
unsubscribe apstat-l <your email address>

(Note: the -l is l as in list, NOT the number one 1)

Do not sign the message, either manually or with a sig. file.

PLEASE DO NOT SEND "UNSUBSCRIBE" MESSAGES TO THE LIST. IT WILL SIMPLY
BE READ BY ALL SUBSCRIBERS AND NOTHING WILL HAPPEN, EXCEPT POSSIBLY
IRRITATE SOMEONE!!
