All we need is for things to keep running smoothly and our collective ability to do the job so to speak. Now that Bob has past 50, don't tell anybody but he is getting up in years and starting to slow down a bit. For now I have paid for the domain another 3 years with the option to renew if at that time I decide to do so.

We are quite pleased with the fact this is a good group of people who obviously want things to move forward looking ahead to 2017.


I was worried about the drop in list traffic, looks like I still know how to get things pumping again.

Thank you to all who have chimed in to put my concerns to rest.

Hi David,

In my opinion, this list is not close to have run its course. I think that right now we are in a smooth sailing period with JAWS and most of the commonly used applications and no one is running into major issues. Of course you have faced the problem with mail compatibility, so I am not sure how many users that has impacted. I do think as soon as JAWS18 officially hits the streets there will be an increase in traffic, as well as when updates to commonly used products become available.

I personally am very appreciative of the hard work and effort you and the team put into keeping this list up and running. I've learned a lot, and try to pay it back by contributing whenever possible. This list fills a gap that is not able to be filled by FS/VFO Technical Support on many levels. Please no one take that as a slam to FS/VFO.

Thank you David & Team!

Annette

I am a bit concerned over the significant drop in list traffic over the past several weeks. Granted Microsoft has blocked out this domain and earlier this year road runner did the same thing. Also in the past com cast and others have done the same.

It might be possible that the list has run its’ course. It is 11 years old this week as a matter of fact which I find hard to believe myself.

Let’s see how things go for a while before any major decisions are made so don’t anybody panic at this point. I am just expressing my concern about the way things have dropped off so much. It had to happen sooner or later. The fact is I have no idea how long the average email list stays in business, I suppose that would be an interesting study.

Now to sit back and see what kind of response this message generates.

You don't have to be crazy to run a list like this, but it does help.
