I am answering instead of Henry (who has other unavoidable commitments
beyond his control). I sympathise [I do all my e-mail domestically and run
into similar - but not identical problems.]
The position is that Henry cannot for (a) physical and (b) institutional
reasons manage the subscriber list at present. [The closure was to protect
against new subscriptions.] The transfer to OASIS *is* proceeding - please
accept that *my* giving details would not be useful.
In passing, I should again point out these problems are th tip of the
iceberg that Henry has had to deal with every week for the last three
years. We all owe him a great deal of gratitude.
Meanwhile all I can ask is:
PLEASE DO NOT POST UNSUBSCRIBE MESSAGES TO THE LIST.
PLEASE DO NOT REPEAT ANY DISCUSSION ON UNSUBSCRIPTION.
