Getting Off topic but...
- My 2 Cents...
I agree with Yuv.
I consider my locally stored emails from this list and the few others I
subscribe to as my personal reference encyclopedia built over the years from
the original panotools list.
I can search, organize, read or not-read, etc...
I've recently tried to get "informed" by hooking up with what I would
consider useful forums and its really a mess to have all the identities,
Regards-just another foot-dragging luddite
