Joining the Big List


If you just want to lurk, then the Web archive is all you need - just check it every day to see what's going on. If you decide that you want to join in then you have to subscribe to the list, which is presently hosted by EMR Data Services (many thanks Bill!) who now also have a VS web page so check there if the instructions on the list don't work. As you will have noticed from the Web archive it can get very busy so PLEASE MAKE A NOTE OF HOW TO UNSUBSCRIBE. If you find the constant stream of single mails too much then change to the digest mode (see below), in which case you will just get one big mail a day.
