This is the first "official" (i.e. non-test) message of the "Try Astronomy" listserv. To send a message to listserve (currently 6 members) address your e-mail to: tryastronomy@xxxxxxxxxxxxx freelists.org allows the setup of listservs _without_ appending advertisements to messages. However, I created a "footer" that gets appended to every message which contains instructions on sending, subscribing, and unsubscribing from the list (see the end of this message). freelists.org also lets you set up a Web page about your list. I created a first draft of a Web page. Please review it by clicking on the link below so that we can discuss it at the next meeting. I purposely worded things to indicate that we are NOT a formal club for liability reasons, should someone trip over a tripod leg or get hit by an asteroid. This page can also be used to subscribe/unsubscribe from the list. Note that there is no trailing slash after the word 'tryastronomy' in this URL. If a trailing slash is added you will get an error page. http://www.freelists.org/webpage/tryastronomy -- Keith Parkansky keithp@xxxxxxxxxx http://www.execpc.com/~keithp http://www.goingtovegas.com http://www.aboutdebian.com -- This message and any attachments were automatically scanned for viruses prior to being sent. ---------------------------------- This message was sent to you from the "Try Astronomy Milwaukee" listserv (a.k.a. mailing list) used by Milwaukee's urban astronomers. http://www.freelists.org/webpage/tryastronomy To send an e-mail message to everyone subscribed to the listserv, simply send it to: tryastronomy@xxxxxxxxxxxxx If you know of someone who would like to sign up to also receive messages from this listserv (a.k.a. subscribe), they can use the above Web page or have them send a blank e-mail to: tryastronomy-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx and put the word SUBSCRIBE in the Subject line of the message.
