Kill it with a piece of = tape on your monitor screen. I actually use multi-colored sticky dots to point = at the important task bar buttons on my email screen. It allows me to see them = better and faster, and be more accurate in cursor position when I click them. I = just make the arrow disappear behind them. (grin)   Sure wish I was in a position to acquire, ship and store the equipment = John Ball is selling. The legacy of John Ball's life is wrapped up in that = collection, and it would sure put a grin on many faces to see as much of that stuff as possible assembled into a single instrument that we could all see and = hear.   But, I realize, that is not likely to happen. So, If you are willing, = I would like to acquire one small un-needed piece of john Ball's collection, and = if John would grant me the wish, I would send it to him for an autograph, and = would ask for a few words about the history of the collection. I'm sure that would = make for a fine story.   With Respect to All, Mike Gettelman     Wdh2@aol.com wrote:   > Forgive Me folks, > I thought I was sending a private E-mail to John Ball regarding his = pipe > collection for sale.

Piporg-l is the exception whereas you = must hit the reply all to respond to the list..the reply only goes to the sender....most lists are NOT configured that way. If you want to reply to the sender privately don't use the reply unless = you then delete the list address and paste in the address that you are interested in replying to (privately)....just about everyone of us has = been burned by hastily replying and finding that what was supposed to be a private response went to the entire list....sometimes with considerable embarrassment.   jch   At 06:47 AM 3/20/02 -0500, you wrote: >It's that damned "Reply All" button Warren #*/$?

I keep my = "Reply All" button covered to prevent me from sending replies to all the people = on forwarded messages I receive and did not think this situation through. = Those who know me will understand I am a bit distracted this morning, and my mind = has turned to mush. My comments per John Ball still apply.   Mike     jch wrote:   > No...it is the reply button....on most email list hitting the reply = sends > your response to the whole list.
