Thank you for your generous support!

MMDigest Publication Problems
By Matthew Caulfield

Robbie remarked at the top of 030919 MMDigest:

> Several subscribers wrote to ask, "What happened to MMD?"
> MMDigest was not transmitted during the previous week while
> I was vacationing.  I am working now to catch up!

Please do not vacation.

> I received unusually few emails during the period 19 Sept.
> through 24 Sept., although messages from subscribers, sent to
> <rolls@foxtail.com>, arrived okay.  I've asked Jody to investigate.

I think that messages to MMD are generated by ideas read in MMDigests.
When no digests are received, no messages are returned.   Again the
solution is "no vacationing!"

Matthew Caulfield

 [ Jody wasn't able to edit MMD while I was away, and when he wasn't
 [ looking the computer ran out of disk storage space for the 3000(!)
 [ emails, mostly junk, that arrived for me and MMDigest.  So he moved
 [ my email storage directory (1 gigabyte) to another disk drive and
 [ today I retrieved the missing messages.  That's why MMDigest 030927
 [ has messages from several days earlier.
 [
 [ "No vacationing?"  My wife won't agree with that suggestion!  ;-)
