Good Morning y'all, here I am again with this week's Traffic Report.
This is the Weekly Traffic Report that is sent to all of the Humor
List subscribers once a month.

I'm happy to announce the launching of a new Web Site exclusively for
the Humor List.  The original Digests for 1997-1998, in text format;
are now ready for your viewing pleasure at:

                 www2.crosswinds.net/baltimore/~jimjr

Updates are provided daily, and you can still use Doug Harter's Index
directly from the site.  Doug was able to make a lot of changes so his
index would work with either the zip site or the new text one.  Once
again, thanks for your work Doug.

Right now, all that's on the UGA site are the Digests and the Traffic
Reports; Bios and well as pics of your ListOwners are there too. The
possibilities for expansion are endless.  Any ideas y'all have are
more than welcome. Eventually, I hope to post all of the Digests ever
mailed.

No grammar/spelling was corrected, nor was any humor edited or deleted.
You will however not find any illegal posts or illegal subscription ads.
Where possible, margins were made better use of and unnecessary blank
lines were eliminated.

Any assistance y'all care to give in promoting the site will be greatly
appreciated.  Subscription and "unsubscribe" instructions are right on
the main page.  A list of all e-mail commands will be added soon.

A special thanks is due our own Rainy (Rainybow) wett@communique.net
for her assistance in obtaining the CrossWinds site.

The 1997-1998 Digests, in zip format, will continue to be posted at my
GeoCities site:   http://www.geocities.com/BourbonStreet/6293
and will continue to be updated weekly.

To verify current addresses, our server randomly selects subscribers
and sends an e-mail to verify the addresses.  Subscribers need take
no action when such a message is received.

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:

Some people in other countries don't understand the US movie rating
system.  I thought as a public service, I'd explain it here today:

 G - Nobody gets the girl
PG - Somebody gets the girl to undress (at least partially)
 R - Somebody gets the girl, but nobody sees it actually happen
 X - Everybody gets the girl
