 Well, actually SCREEN-L has no special Hanukkah/Christmas/New
 Year's schedule, and will be pumping out messages throughout
 the holidays.
 This note is just a warning to those of you who will be unable
 to check your e-mail for days (or weeks) at a time:
 you'll prevent serious e-mailbox cram-osity if you turn off
 SCREEN-L during that time period.
 Remember, there are two ways to stop messages from SCREEN-L:  (1)
 signing off SCREEN-L entirely (and then resubscribing when you
 return) or (2) setting your subscription to "nomail" (and then
 turning it back on again later).  These two options are described
 Have a too-cool holiday!
Signing off of SCREEN-L:
   Subscribers may leave SCREEN-L by sending e-mail with the
   to [log in to unmask] or [log in to unmask]  Please please
   please send this command to "listserv" not to "screen-l."
   Messages sent to "screen-l" will, of course, go out to
   everyone on SCREEN-L.
   If you have trouble signing off, notify Jeremy Butler
   ([log in to unmask] or [log in to unmask]).
Setting your subscription to NOMAIL:
   There are a number of things you can do to control how your
   subscription to SCREEN-L is handled.  In LISTSERV terms, you
   can "set" several options that will modify how SCREEN-L mail
   is sent (or not sent) to you.
   Here's the basic method:  send mail to [log in to unmask]
   or [log in to unmask]  Once again, note that the address is not
   "screen-l," but rather "listserv."  After the header, put in
   the command:
   SET SCREEN-L <option>
   "<option>" is the thing you want to set for your subscription
   to SCREEN-L.
   NOMAIL turns off your mail delivery but keeps your name on
   SCREEN-L.  Thus, to suspend mail delivery:
   To restart delivery:
      The Dadaist gave the bourgeois a sense of confusion and a distant,
      yet mighty rumbling, so that this bells began to buzz, his safes
      frowned, and his honors list broke out in spots.
