I'm glad you pointed this out, because I didn't realize that we could
subscribe to particular forums and get email notifications when new posts
appeared. I've set up my subscriptions and I'll see how it goes, but that
was a concern I had about switching over from listserv mode.

I agree.  But in that case, I'd want to receive a notification every time
the forum was updated, not just one time until I visit the forum, which is
the way it's set up now.

Thanks, Peter, for setting all this up. I can see a lot of work has gone
into it.
