If you have WWW access as well as email (I know, not always a given), there's an
easy way to find out whether anyone is actually talking or if your hearing is at

>The “compact” feed >includes the subject line, plus the first 100 characters of
>the latest 25 messages posted to the list.
...sounds fairly useful for the purpose of monitoring the list (unless, of

I'd ask if you were checking mail on your MessagePad (you know, just so this
post isn't a total loss), but we all know the answer to that one. : /
