I'm working with the help of mailing lists since ~1995 now and I'm subscribed to 20++ technical lists and a bunch of forum portals. Mailing lists have the definitely advantage that ALL mails come to the same INBOX and based on the Subject: you can easily sort out if the Subject matters to you or if you could say something usefull to it. And with a threaded presentation of Subject: you can delete all the mails with the same Subject at once. Should I go in the future to 20++ portals and check the threads there? No way, then I should retire from technical busines (I'm 67 years and maybe should do this in any case :-) ) matthias -- Matthias Apitz, ✉ guru@xxxxxxxxxxx, http://www.unixarea.de/ +49-176-38902045 Public GnuPG key: http://www.unixarea.de/key.pub No euro for the war!
