Subject: Change in Diary Delivery Mechanism
As mentioned earlier it is no longer practical to continue to deliver the
diary material from the Middle East in the form of a regular Humanist Digest.
They will now by delivered using the AFD (Automatic File Distribution)
feature of Listserv. Subscription to the diaries is optional; it is
not automatic in virtue of a regular Humanist subscription.
If you wish to continue to receive these diaries (including any new
series that may be added) please follow these instructions:
Send mail with the following two lines as body text to LISTSERV@BROWNVM
or to LISTSERV@BROWNVM.BROWN.EDU.
PW ADD password
AFD ADD MIDEAST DIARIES HUMANIST PW=password F=MAIL
Replace the string "password" with a password you will remember.
Write it down -- recovering a forgotten password may take weeks.
("AFD" stands for "Automatic File Distribution")
Be sure to send that mail to LISTSERV and not to HUMANIST or
to EDITORS. Do _not_ use your mail software's REPLY command to
send this mail.
To delete your subscription to MIDEAST DIARIES send the line:
AFD DELETE MIDEAST DIARIES HUMANIST PW=password
You will receive the diaries as regular email.
For more information about using AFD or other listserv functions
send mail with the line HELP to your nearest listserv. If you
don't know the address of your nearest listserv send the mail to
either of the Brown addresses above and it will be forwarded to
the listserv nearest you. David Sitman (A79@TAUNIVM) will answer
general questions about LISTSERV commands and problems. Specific
problems with your AFD subscription to MIDEAST DIARIES should be
sent to the EDITORS.
At this time we plan to periodically archive back issues of
MIDEAST DIARIES as MIDEAST DIAyymm on the fileserver. More
recent back copies may be ordered from the Editors. We may not
be able to continue this archiving.
Please be patient. If anything goes wrong with this procedure
your Editors and the Brown Listserv Administrator will be swamped
with error mail and will not be able to answer individual queries.
If you read Humanist on a bulletin board, via a local mail 'exploder',
or through any other similar mechanism you should speak to the
relevant administrator about whether there should be a single
