Don,
        Just FYI, while David is the godfather of AS/400 related mailing lists, 
he 
does not run the JDE Mailing List (yet <g>).  Information regarding the 
JDEList Mailing can be found at:  http://www.jdelist.com .

OK,  Colin, I give...

I'm not wanting to start a nationism war here, but from a technical
standpoint, wouldn't I want to look at ONE place for my data as opposed to
allowing my resource points to be fragmented?

I'm at a bit of a loss as to what technical concerns/problems/interests
that the UK would have that Germany, USSR, US, Singapore, etc., wouldn't
have...ergo, I would prefer to limit the amount of email that I get
(already getting 300-500/ DAY!) and frankly, if I want to get JDE items
I'ld rather sub to a seperate list than be bombarded with all the latest
proponderances about F0311....

I think David's done a great job of segmenting the special interest areas
(JDE, BPCS, etc) and what I would have to ask is what service is it going
to provide to be to have to see the SAME questions being posted to
MULTIPLE listservers?  It's just going to clog my email in box....

I'm not sure fragmentation here is for the betterment...

Don in DC
