Hi, everyone, this is Doug, with this month's traffic report. Once a month, during the first part of the month, I send the report to the entire HUMOR list. Welcome to the month of December, 2001.

Starting this month, I will slowly be changing the Contributions of Humor. I will not always make you work for the Contributions of Humor. I an extracting the jokes from the Digests and storing them on my computer. If I have the joke extracted, I will show it. If I do not have it extracted, the jokes themselves will not be shown, only the link. Follow the link if you want to see what the joke is. For more information on this, see the Contribution of Humor section.

I HAVE A NEW SITE FOR THE HUMOR ARCHIVES. When I get everything moved, everything will be on this site. The address is repeated later, but it is humor.catweasel.org. Once I get everything moved, I will be implementing a couple new things. Watch the Traffic Report for further news.

I am running out of people who want to be featured in the Contributor's SpotLight. I will be sending out request to some of our Contributors this week, but if I get no more accepting, I will have to discontinue that item in the Traffic Report.

Some college students graduated this month. Remember to signoff your old address and sign up at your new one if you are not keeping your college mailing address.

  • Gwen Meehan is one of our older Contributors (not in years, but in
    time on the list). She has only contributed 4 times from June thru
    September 2001. But that is going to change, as you can see below.
    Here is information about her, in her own words.

    Gwen Meehan has been on the humor list since 1993 (she started with a
    different last name), and when she had more time in college and grad
    school, provided a lot of posts to the list. She gets most of her
    content from friends who forward her funny stuff, but has been known
    to lift a newspaper column or two if it tickles her funny bone.

    Currently, she's on maternity leave since the birth of her first
    child. This means that we'll probably see more humor posts from her
    in between caring for a baby boy. When she's not being a mom, she
    works for AT&T doing computer security (trying to catch the bad guy
    hackers). She spent the first couple of years on the list in
    college, and then 4 years in the Air Force, before she separated in
    1999 to work for AT&T.

    And finally, the one feature which has been featured in all Traffic Reports,
    the contribution of Humor. Since, I am not a real regular contributor, I will
    not be providing new Humor. Instead, I will provide a joke from the archives.
    It will be at least 14 months old, so most of you won't remember it. You will
    either see the joke below or a link to the joke, not the actual joke, although
    I will provide the Subject line (Topic). Since there are now HTML versions of
    all Digests, it will point to the joke itself.
    
    My contribution of Humor from the Archives:
    

    This joke is too long for the Traffic Report. The link will be shown.
