[rollei_list] Rollei List RUG-FAQ.html update

Hi Ruggers,

The following WWW FAQ document:

http://www.stutterheim.nl/rollei/faq.html 

has just been updated to reflect some additional material discussed on
the RUG or new Internet links found since the last FAQ release.

This release mainly takes into account the new list computer
management on freelists.org. Some additional web pointers &
information has been added but I still have a huge backlog since Feb.
2004.....

 1. Introduction

 To get a copy of the very last version of the Rollei Users List /
 Rollei Users Group (the RUG) text FAQ by e-mail, between WWW releases
 on Ferdi Stutterheim's site, please send me a blank e-mail message to
 bigler, at ens2m dot fr, with either of the following *subject* lines:

 ** list management issues

 Where is the Rollei Users Group mailing list ?

 For 8 years (1996-2004), Marc James Small's Rollei Users List / Rollei
 Users Group has been hosted on a computer named :
 mejac.palo-alto.ca.us. The interface was named : majordomo software. 
 8 years is pretty close to a geological era in computer science ;
 meanwhile and after successfully crossing the Y2K barrier without much
 trouble, the Internet and related software has become more reliable,
 more user-friendly. No surprise that some day, an upgrade would be
 necessary for the Rollei Users List / Rollei Users Group. This upgrade
 took place as of January 2005, the new service managing the Rollei Users
 List is named : freelists.org.
 
 Rollei Users Group e-mail addresses and subscription procedures are as
 follows.
 
 In order to be able to post messages to the list, you need to register
 by providing a valid e-mail address.
 
 Through a web interface go to : 
 
 http://www.freelists.org/list/rollei_list
 
 After you have registered (see below), simply e-mail your messages to :
 rollei_list at freelists dot org
 
 and your message will be mailed to all registered rollei_list users.
 The archives of the rollei_list are directly accessible here :
 http://www.freelists.org/archives/rollei_list
 
 For example, all messages dated February 2005 are here :
 http://www.freelists.org/archives/rollei_list/02-2005/
 
 Please take good note that the proper list on freelists.org for which
 this FAQ is maintained is : rollei_list, the continuation of Marc
 James Small's 'mejac-majordomo' Rollei list.
 
 OK now assume that you are on http://www.freelists.org/list/rollei_list
 You'll see something like this :
 
 Rollei List
 # Name: Rollei List
 
 # Description: This is a list dedicated to the technical history of
   the evolution of the Rolleiflex camera from its original inception
   by Franke & Heidecke as a stereo camera in the 1920's to the
   medium-format and digital cameras produced today. The list emphasis
   is on the rapid development of lens and shutter designs spurred by
   the Rolleiflex cameras over the past eight decades and the impact
   these cameras are having today on the evolving technology of digital
   photography.

 For example, to the request : "get help" you'll receive the following
 text message by mail :
 
 
 ** Ecartis Help File **
 By Rachel Blackman, JT Traub and Ryan T. Dean
 
 TO GET A LIST OF LISTS:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server with a subject
        of "lists".  A list of lists hosted by the server will be returned
        to you.
 
 TO SUBSCRIBE TO A LIST:
 
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server (you can just
        reply to this message).  In the subject field, enter "subscribe
        [listname]".  Or, you can send a message to "[listname]-request"
        with a subject of "subscribe".
 
 TO UNSUBSCRIBE FROM A LIST:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server (you can just
        reply to this message).  Enter "unsubscribe [listname]" in the
        subject field.  You can also send a message to 
        "[listname]-request" with a subject of "unsubscribe".
         While you should NOT send your unsubscribe command to the list
         itself, Ecartis will attempt to trap such erroneous postings and
         forward them to the list administrators for proper handling.
 
 TO GET A DIGEST EVERY DAY:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server with a subject
        of "set [listname] digest".  This will turn on digests, and you
        will receive a digest however often the server is configured to
        send them.
 
 TO STOP GETTING A DIGEST:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server with a subject
        of "unset [listname] digest".  This will turn off digest mode, and
        instead you will receive an eMail every time something is posted
        to the list.
 
 TO GET A DIGEST AND NORMAL POSTS:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server with a subject
        of "set [listname] digest2".  This will activate digest mode with
        normal posting.  As each message is posted to the list it will be
        sent to you, and you will receive a digest as well.  This flag
        should be used INSTEAD of digest, NOT IN ADDITION TO.
        To stop receiving digests in addition to normal posts, send a
        message to the ecartis account with a subject of "unset [listname]
         digest2".  You will go back to receiving normal posts.
 
 TO FIND OUT WHO IS ON A LIST:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server with a subject
        of "who [listname]".  You will receive a list of people subscribed
        to the list who are not hidden.  Admins will be able to see
        everbody, including those hidden.
 
 TO HIDE ON A LIST:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server with a subject
        of "set [listname] hidden".  You will no longer appear on WHO
        queries to the listserver.  No one (except Admins) will know you
        are subscribed to the list unless you post to it (in which case
        those people on the list will know you posted if nothing else).
 
 TO STOP HIDING ON A LIST:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server with a subject 
        of "unset [listname] hidden".  You will then show up on WHO
        queries to the listserver.
 
 TO GO ON VACATION:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server with a subject
        of "set [listname] vacation".  You will remain subscribed to the
        list but will not receive any eMail as long as this flag is set.
        To come back from vacation, eMail the ecartis account with a
        subject of "unset [listname] vacation".
 
 TO CHECK ON YOUR OWN STATUS:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server with a subject
        of "stats [listname]".  You will get a list of all the flags
        currently set on your account.
 
 TO GET A LIST OF FLAGS AVAILABLE:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server with a subject
        of "flags".  An eMail will be sent to you with the available flags
        that you can set on your account.
 
 TO GET A LIST OF COMMANDS AVAILABLE:
        Send a message to the ecartis account on the server with a subject
        of "commands".  An eMail will be sent to you with all the commands
        that the server and any installed modules offer.

 You may get all this information by sending requests as explained
 above to the FreeLists Mailing List Manager ecartis at freelists dot org

---
 You may also subscribe and un-subscribe 100% old-style 100% by e-mail
 no-web - pure ASCII ;-) without the web interface by sending commands
 in the "subject" line to 
 ecartis at freelists dot org, subject 'subscribe rollei_list' 

 or to 
 'rollei_list at freelists dot org'  subject : 'subscribe'

---
 If everything fails, you may go to the freelists help pages :

 For now there's a FAQ at http://www.freelists.org/help/faq.html and full 
 documentation is available at http://www.freelists.org/help.

 ================================================================

 So after this long preamble, welcome to our list and let us talk about
 Rollei camera and products. In addition to the welcome message please
 find here a document to help you to find useful information about the
 discussion list itself as well as general information about Rollei
 cameras. This document is mostly a collection of web pointers. Web
 URLs can vanish any day without notice, so you'll find conventional
 bibliographical references and a few detailed explanations.

 There is another FAQ project, different in its spirit....

 http://www.geocities.com/SoHo/Village/3762/Rollei/index.html As of
 Feb. 2005, this FAQ does not seem active any longer, however it does
 contain useful information.
