'[OT] PICLIST admin stuff'

Note: this thread was getting too good to stop, but I had to move it OT
to maintain any shred of respectability.

I think we could do tagging without the need for official blessing with
a "plug-in" for the [OT] channel, basically a bitmask for all the
possible topic areas - and it could easily lengthen as new topics are
discovered, ie:

Subject: [OT]0804 iPhone 3G, does it blend?

0804 would decode to 0000100000000100 and would signify that it contains
two topic areas(don't ask me which two!)

Later we could always expand to 32 bit or even 64 bit as new subject
areas are refined.

All this without needing to modify the list settings or official
blessing!

Cheerful regards,

Bob

I can highly recommend this fine "O'Reilly" shamanic help guide:

I always found this thing called a Subject Line to be quite useful in
determining which whole threads just get deleted without even reading
them.

Never turned any tags on/off at all.  Couldn't care less about them,
other than TRYING to post under the correct one(s).

Hard to remember to do that too, because PICLIST is the only list I've
been on since the modem-BBS days, where something in the subject line
actually changes who/what gets received at the far end.

Dear Mongrel,

> I started the discussion with my post.

Indeed you did.
But now your fun is done (hopefully) how about moving to OT
as Bob suggests.
Fun is fun but tags are tags and while a bit of noise in PIC
is OK ...

Hmmm. Where's the mailman manual ...

Spehro, you suck!  It took me about five minutes to realize why I can't find
the book on Amazon or any other bookstore.

Olin wrote a book on computer graphics a while back:

That has to be the best reference work I have seen in a while. The way
it is compiled has me chortling still. What a good read.

Thanks for making my day.

If you enjoyed that one, they've recently added a few new books that you
might also enjoy.

(We had a little "session" of book writing at work today.)
