Re: [xmca]-- LONG trails of prior messages help!!

When a topic like Concepts has gotten as long as this one has, my advice is to delete all the quoted prior messages except the most recent two or three. That should help.

By the way, it is NOT easy to do this the first time, but after someone takes the plunge, it will be easy for the rest of us.
