Prozac cocktails all round (grin) From: "Emmons, Paul" <pemmons@wcupa.edu> Date: Sat, 27 Oct 2001 14:19:05 -0400   Digest mode may be more trouble than it's worth for some that are using = it, but if even a small minority want it, it should be provided.   Some mail readers are like black holes. Valuable material by the megabyte flies into it constantly, and it is almost impossible to get it out again. I have a big gripe with all software that does not have *some* kind of feature to bulk-export its data in ascii. If the only way to export messages is one at a time, then the digest may be the best way to = subscribe to a list.   Another reason might be that the volume of traffic threatens to swamp all one's other messages in the "Inbox."   Several times, I have used digest mode for these reasons, even though the choice had no financial impact.   Paul

I'm sorry I don't have the exact citation, but seek and ye shall find-- it should be mentioned in a volume of Music Index for the period, = or in bibliographies like Thomerson's. I believe that a copy of this article used to be standard equipment for all serious students of Langlais repertoire.   Paul Emmons
