In spite of owning a computer, I'm staring at the rain on the windows of my office, so here's my two bits.

Do y'all know that you can set up a filter so that your out-of-office reply won't reply to a message from the listserve?  I won't explain how it is done because a) everyone's system is different, and b) I don't quite remember how I did it.  A friendly tech support person could probably tell you how to set up a filter in your email program.  I know that would help cut back on the blues.

Additionally, how about we all make a pact to always send our ideas to the listserve.  (Afterall, that's what I thought was the whole purpose of the listserve.)  That way we won't feel like we have to make a request for the ideas to be posted to the listserve everytime someone posts a request for ideas.

While I'm on a roll....
Would it be okay if when someone sends a public message of "thanks" to a lister who has sent great information,  we can all be sure he/she is speaking in behalf of all listers?  Any dissenting opinions (not thankful) could be sent directly to the submitter, if necessary, as could additional messages of "thanks" that just have to be sent.

One last thought:
Since we are pretty much all developmental educators, we should be well practiced in the art of patience.  And we can certainly put our delete button to quick use.

I will add that in spite of a few hang ups, the listserve remains one of my greatest resources for my job.  I don't know how other professions get along without such a resource.

Thanks for many years of great ideas.

Sorry, but according to http://www.analogman.com/singblues.htm,
possession of a computer disqualifies one from singing the blues.
What worries me is the potential for "out of office" loops.  Users set
up automatic out-of-office messages.  Listserv message arrives at email
boxes, which automatically generate out-of-office replies.
Out-of-office replies go to listserv, which sends them out to everyone,
including the out-of-office boxes, which generate replies to the
listserv, which sends them out to everyone...
Disintegration of Internet results in due course, followed by
inexplicable increase in workplace productivity, especially marked in
the education sector.

Subject: Edukcational Listserv Blues

Education, education
it's a messy administration
We've got technology we love to use
But it gives me the implementation blues.

Email groups! A great invention
Like a whenever-you-want convention.
Post a great idea- out it goes!
Everybody shares and grows.

Ah, but we've got special abilities
To reverse high-tech utlitiles.
Instead of 1 message to 50 of we,
It's 50 messages saying "Send it to me!"

I guess the only way to add to this
Would be to ask everyone to unsubscribe me from the list :-) I've got
technology I love to use But it's giving me the implementation blues...

Suppose I could sit here and weep and moan But I do have a website of my
own If files for this list need an online home  Though they'd be Out On
THe Web, where the Spiders roam So the files would be there for all the
world to see, Which may be just a little bit too free.

YahooGroups has email lists
With places to upload files like this.
We'd have tolerate interminable ads
And privacy invasions and other fads

I've got high tech stuff that I love to use But Ive got the
implementation blues...

Yes, do put the replies on the listserve.  I like the idea of putting
training materials online.

Subject: Re: Ideas to Revamp Tutor Orientation?

Please send replies to the list -- I'm facing the same challenge this
summer. (One thing I'm looking into is putting our training materials
on-line, so I'd appreciate any thoughts in that area as well.)
