What I had in mind and it might not work anyway cause it assumes
"newbies" know how to (and their e-mail client supports it - does AOL?)
click a link is that you change your sig line to include:
>> To SUBSCRIBE (or unsubscribe ;-( ) from this or other
Notetab related discussion groups see:
then on that site (below each's link you copy the activity by month-year
graph that Yahoo-groups puts at the foot of each groups "home" page.
If it could be dynamically updated so it always reflects the up-to the
minute count of posts this month that would be great, but even if it
only reflects (say) up to last month's activity with "???" where the
current month would go I think it would be useful.
I uploaded a sample (it works great but I didn't upload the the bits and
pieces) that do the coloring etc. - on my system in my IE6 browser it
(Not half-bad for someone who doesn't know any HTML - I'm not sure I
could have done it Notetab but it sure is easy with Dreamweaver ;-)
I put in the current table from Ntb-Clips - see:
Note: Julie (?) / Jody: I would have put the page in OffTopic files but
I guess that didn't get enabled when you did the others at Sherri's
Jody - others: a challenge :-) write a notetab clip that runs every day
and updates the five or six required tables with the current tables
available froon the yahoo home pages.
