    Another humble suggestion: Might it be possible to alter one aspect of the Lounge's email notification scheme to make it less likely that I log out of notificatyion rather than inspect what's new? (Of course, if the design is specifically aimed at reducing my participation, what follows is moot, if I'm allowed to say that here).


    After all this time I still - no, "As I get older I am increasingly prone to " - click on the "unsubscribe" URL rather than the "Board=", with the subsequent but short-lived amazement as the flags of all nations parade before my bleary eyes. The introduction of two blank lines between the URLs would do much to alleviate the problem. I have a couple of vbCrlfs lying around if they are of any use.

    Thanks.

    Do you realize, now that I've made this change, there are lots and lots of additional blank lines travelling across the world and we may have to charge you additional postage? <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    BTW, this is one of the few areas in the lounge where changes can't be tested, we'll see if it works next time the subscriptions go out <img src=/S/crossfingers.gif border=0 alt=crossfingers width=17 height=16>
    Cheers, Claude.

    > there are lots and lots of additional blank lines

    Well, lots and lots of TWO additional lines. They aren't really lines, are they? They are travelling by carriage and are being fed on a diet of lines.

    I saw two blank lines this morning and arrived here without having to re-login(grin!) thanks. From the look of it, on CrLf would have done as nicely. But I'm not complaining. I'm happy.
