Hey Bruce, Seems to be back to normal.<
No, its still messed up, I just added the daily summaries. As posted, I have
reduced the number of individual posts, but now I added the summary (its
like 2 steps back and 1 step forward).
No one has complained (so far), but I work hard to be sensitive to my daily
use of evdl members' bandwidth (the evdl is not for brucedp's own use by
dominating with too many posts).
But until our sysop resolves the changes to the nabble archive, I will use
the method I used last night (post EVLN item I hope people will use the
most, and hold back those that get read the least).
It was suggested that I combine news items into one big newswire post, but
that has not worked out in the past, as readers have shown they like the
ability to pick-n-choose what they want.
Posting the summary may not seem necessary to some, if I am already posting
the individual items. But there are those that use my work to disseminate
news items they feel a forum they participate on would want to know (i.e.:
the short blurb about Smart EVs, re-posted on the smart forum, etc.).
To back this belief, look at
at the number of views. If people are only using my free work (since 1990)
by reading an individual post in their intray, then there would be no need
for them to access that EVLN post on the evdl's nabble archive. But people
are sharing/disseminating EV-news. This is a very good thing, and I am glad
it is being done. Not that it is an ego stoke for me, but the whole
purpose/the reason I kill-myself to find, clean-up, and get this out, is for
people to use to get the EV word out (think of it as lots of people
contributing like open-source = a lot gets done).
I am hoping this nabble issue gets resolved, and I do not have to find a new
archive to stash my EVLN posts. Our sysop made a great effort to allow me to
post to a separate EVLN sub-folder just so regular evdl posts are not
cluttered up/over-whelmed with all my stuff.
Well, since I am using bandwidth to make this post, I might as well also use
it for other purposes (as was suggested - the following has ot topics).
*Note: In a week, I will be flying out, arriving in Austin, TX,
reconnoitering a couple of hours north for a few days (check out the area),
and come to stay for my last few days south again in San Antonio.

As I type, flood waters are receding, people are putting their lives back
I am hoping locals will come out to the 9/16 San Antonio NDEW EVent
Then I will poke around SA until mid-week when I leave to return home out
I mention this as I am hoping there won't be an EVLN posting disruption, but
this old body gets tired a whole lot quicker than it used to, so we will
have to see how it goes.
Since I am not posting the least read items, I will use this combined post
opportunity to clump in said items to his post. First, it one that is mostly
ot, but only has an honorable mention of EVs in it. But it points out that
those wackadoodle Californians are going to what some outsiders mind seem
like as an extreme: an ordinance to force drivers to turn off their ice when
not in use.
Outsiders have to understand, Palo Alto is the more affluent part of
northern Silicon Valley (many of their elite live and work there = Very
Expen$ive). Besides their high stress super money making deals (facebook,
google, yahoo, and many others live here), there are some that would say
that area also has its fair share of extreme save-the-earth types that want
to return the bay's salt ponds back to nature
(which will be a haven for more west-Nile-virus mosquitoes, skunks, mash
rats, and other vermin/pests).
They also want the mountains to return to be a haven for the wild life
(mountain lions, coyote, etc.). while at the same time, parent's sightings
of in Palo Alto neighborhoods of mountain lions, etc.
causes a concern/uproar of pets and kids being consumed (wacka poodle
So, while we have heard of some countries' planned ban of ice sales in the
future, this turn off your ice, is another step to reduce pollution, that
other regions may dislike.
