[Xmca-l] Re: Time of Transition

Hi Mike and xmca-ers!
While I'm very grateful to be included once more in the posts from this list, I wonder if you could for the time being remove me just due to the sheer volume of posts that I just don't have the time to engage with right now?
All very best wishes

Subject: [Xmca-l] Time of Transition

Hi Don-- I apologize to you and any old timers who got caught up in the most recent snarl with XMCA. It will be fixed as soon as possible.

Explanation: I went emeritus last month, a major computer guy who worked with me retired, and UCSD reconfigured its computers, partly efficiency, partly security. And then a key transition figure went on vacation. And then the trouble hit when MCA was caught part way between systems.

In reconstituting the system, Silas came along late in the game and has been patching things together. The technical fix he implemented has various pluses (You can join and quite on your own and set preferences) but you have exposed a minus. A mixture of participants from different times are inconvenienced. If you have trouble disengaging, email me and I will seekto get it fixed. Meantime, just stick us in your spam filter!

Miss your voice.
