COMM-ORG upgrade update

Hi COMM-ORG.  I just want to keep you up to date on 
upgrades here, especially if students are using the list server 
or web site.

You have probably noticed that the COMM-ORG messages 
have new header information.  For those of you using old e-
mail packages, or packages incompatible with the latest 
Internet e-mail standards, you are seeing a bunch of 
gobbledygook at the beginning of messages.  Hopefully, you 
can make out from the gobbledygook that those are actually e-
mail links to subscribe, unsubscribe and get help about the 
list.  For those of you with e-mail packages supporting the 
latest standards, like Pegasus mail, you only see one link, 
and when you click on it you get a window with buttons to 
sub, unsub, and get help.  Sorry for those of you who get all 
the gobbledygook.  As far as I know, there is nothing I can do 
about that.

I will be doing more hardware upgrades over the 4th of July, so 
COMM-ORG will be down for part (hopefully only part) of that 
day.  That should be the last major upgrade and the rest will 
be further individual software grades that you will only notice if 
something goes wrong.

Thanks for your patience and for the messages of support.
