My copy of the 31 Aug - 1 Sept digest ended at message 37. Messages 38 to
46, as indicated in the header were missing. ?

About PIR sensor modules: I buy these from China. $US6 plus postage, no
minimum quantity.






regards,  Peter

I also noticed sometimes this problem with piclist digests.

The messages are not missing, only "hidden". If one (or more)
messages in the digest contains a line composed of *exactly* 32
dash ("-") characters (no other character at the beginning or end
of the line), that line is interpreted by MIME as an "end of file",
so the other messages in the digest got lost.

Sometimes those lines are present in the signature of a message.
So, if you have exactly 32 dashes in one line of your signature,
PLEASE change that number to any other (avoid also 30 that is
message separator), thank you.

To solve the "bug" I edit the file containg the digest, searching
for the that line and changing it (overwriting one of the dashes
with a space is sufficent), being careful to not vary the lenght
of the file. Note that the last line of the digest must have 32
dashes.

For those using Netscape, here is the method I use:
(Warning: it may mess-up the mailbox, do it carefully!)

1) When I receive the piclist digest in my Inbox, as first
  thing I check that there aren't missing messages. This is
  easily done, clicking on the "paper clip" button, counting
  the number of "envelopes" (every row has ten icons) and
  comparing with the number of messages stated at the beginning
  of the digest. If they are the same, OK, otherwise:
2) Select menu "File"->"Compress Folders"
  (this steps avoid garbage when editing the file)
3) Exit Netscape Messenger (not necessary, but safer)
4) Edit the Netscape "Inbox" file as above mentioned with an
  ascii editor (your path will probaby be "C:\Program Files\
  Netscape\Users\YOUR_NAME_MAY_VARY\").
  Notes:
  4a) the editor must be capable of loading files bigger
      than 64kB (Notepad can't, a good freeware editor is
      EmEditor). For extra caution, I make sure not to vary
      the lenght of file (overwrite the line, don't insert
      characters). Variyng the lenght may cause problems if
      messages are indexed, and I don't want to mess-up my mailbox.
  4b) DON'T MODIFY the last line of the file, it MUST have 32
      dashes, as it is the REAL "end of file".
  4c) If you are not sure what are you doing, do a backup copy
      of the file before editing.
5) When done, save the file, exit from the editor and relaunch
  Messenger. Now the digest should show all messages.

XTREE (Gold) is *still* one of the most powerful PC management tools.
Its viewer lets you byte-edit files of any length (in HEX mode only),
but you can't change file lengths anyway.

 If I *do* vary the length of a file in editing, I make a point of
deleting the corresponding index (SNM) file before pointing Netscape
back to the file, just in case.  I'm not sure if it's essential, but I
haven't had any blunders.

 The one blunder I *did* have, was last weekend and trashed my whole
Inbox.  This was however due to running out of disk space; I had *only*
allocated 548Mb to my Internet partition.  Anyone to whom I should have
replied last weekend, that's why I haven't (contained months of un-
answered messages, about 4Mb)!

My digest today was 11 messages long before being cut-off.

82 messages were indicated in the header. It was cut off as follows:

software or libraries to support it- the Imagenation came with C libraries
to do most tasks (grabbing, transferring lines around memory, adding and
subtracting frames, and even some 3x3 and 5x5 filtering!)

Maybe Jody cut the others as all being [OT]?
