Well, actually SCREEN-L has no special Hanukkah/Christmas/New
Year's schedule, and will be pumping out messages throughout
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
SET SCREEN-L <option>
"<option>" is the thing you want to set for your subscription
>>>SUSPENDING MAIL TEMPORARILY
NOMAIL turns off your mail delivery but keeps your name on
SCREEN-L. Thus, to suspend mail delivery:
SET SCREEN-L NOMAIL
To restart delivery:
SET SCREEN-L MAIL
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.
