Positions vacant & some explanations
Mon, 29 Jul 2002 19:52:44 +1000
First the explanations
The launching of the new list produced some glitches which I am trying to
sort out so please bear with me. For example the following will have
received messages to say they were both unsubscribed and subscribed to the
list! I believe they should be subscribed!!
Julia Christensen Hughes, Chris Rust, Lynn Sorensen.
Then because we organised with the list server to subscribe all HERDSA
members everyone missed out on receiving the usual listserver instructions
about using the list. I am arranging to post this to you in a day or two.
