This is not a question, but a welcome reminder to some of our newcomers.

Some of the newer sign ups joining our community might not be aware of some 
cool stuff that supports this discussion group & for the longer time 
participants you might want to check back to http://www.midrange.com 
occasionally since the site gets occasional face lifts & lots of new goodies.

http://archive.midrange.com
Copies of past postings are here in which the e-mail addresses of the 
participants have been stripped away to protect us from spam miners, and we 
can do a search of a particular list, or search ALL, for some topic that has 
come up in past discussions, or just recurring seasonal hot topics like year 
end hassles, deciphering ERP costs

http://archive.midrange.com/bpcs-l/index.htm
or you can go direct to the archives of a particular group

http://www.midrange.com/liststats.htm
Here are statistics on how many people are involved in the various discussion 
lists.

http://test.midrange.com
David is working on a major new version of how the site works, now hosted by 
AS/400, & wants people to check it out & let him know if there are any 
problems to fix that he might have overlooked.

Send an e-mail, not to this discussion list, but to
MAJORDOMO@midrange.com
the subject does not matter
in the body put the word 
help
nothing else

You get back a message text listing all the commands you can send to 
MAJORDOMO, and what they mean, like a mini-manual

if you put the word "end" on a line after the commands, that prevents it from 
treating your sig like it is a set of commands, thus

help
end

Suppose you misplaced the introduction that you get when you first sign up 
for a list & now your e-mail address is changing & you want to see how to end 
the subscription to the old address & move it to the new address, you can get 
another copy of those instructions via

intro bpcs-l
end

or whatever the list is you want the instructions again for

We can do things like get at statistics on the traffic in our list like the 
following:
