Good Morning y'all, here I am again with this week's Traffic Report.

subscribers once a month.

Just a reminder that each Traffic Report contains a summary of the
rules and the most widely used ListServer commands.

To verify current addresses, our server randomly selects subscribers
and sends an e-mail which you may be asked to respond to in order to
renew/continue your subscription.

Errors returned from your Server to our ListServer may cause your
name to be dropped from the list.  If you feel, at any time, that
you have been dropped from the list, or have stopped receiving mail
from the ListServer, simply resubscribe.  You will not receive
duplicate mailings to the same address; if you're already subscribed,
the ListServer will verify that.

And now for a contribution of humor:

When we first moved to Howard County, I enjoyed scouting the area.
One day I came upon a farmer and his pretty daughter selling wares
from their farm at a roadside stand.  I stopped, bought some produce,
and introduced myself.

The farmer introduced himself as one of the Warfields, then the young
lady said, "Nice to meet you, I'm Amalysinita."  I said, "Isn't that
a rather long name for such a pretty lil' girl ?"

The farmer scowling replied, "Listen son.  We're not city folk.  We
got the time."
