- For Julie and anybody else who couldn't bring up the list from the link
I sent. The first page of this listserv's homepage is at
it is open to anybody and shows a description of the listserv and a few
of the latest messages to give people an idea if they'd like to sign up
or not. To get anywhere else on the page you have to sign in with your
Yahoo ID and password. You probably created one when you signed up for
this list, but if you checked listserv only you might not have, but
could sign up now. If anybody just wants the list I mentioned I can
copy it into an e-mail and send it, but there is quite a bit on the
webpage and I update it when I find something new, so I think it's
worth your time to figure out how to log on. If you want me to paste
the list into an e-mail for you, please e-mail me directly (don't reply
to the list) at uthoff@... Thanks and sorry for any

P.S. Julie thanks for being brave enough to ask, probably there were
other people having trouble also.
