Welcome to the Dragon Mailing List


Welcome to the Dragon Mailing List!  This e-mail list exists for the
discussion of the Dragon Data, Eurohard and Tano Corp. computers and
various emulators.

You have been subscribed to the list as:

  YourFullName <your.email@yourhost.com>

The latest version of this document can also be obtained from
http://www.grempc.demon.co.uk/dragon/list/welcome.html

Unsubscribing from this list
----------------------------

Send an e-mail with  unsubscribe  in the subject line or message body to
dragon-list-request@grempc.demon.co.uk

To rejoin the list again, just send another message containing
 subscribe  to dragon-list-request@grempc.demon.co.uk

How to send mail to the list
----------------------------

Address your message to dragon-list@grempc.demon.co.uk

grempc.demon.co.uk is a dial-up host so your message may take a few days
to propagate.  You will receive a copy of your own message back at the
same time as it is delivered to all the other recipients on the list.

If you do not get a copy back within a reasonable time (a week ?) then
please let me know at dragon-list-admin@grempc.demon.co.uk

(grempc.demon.co.uk is not associated with any other demon.co.uk host)

Replying to messages
--------------------

Please note that messages sent out will contain the original sender's
From: and Reply-To: fields and so by default your replies will go only to
the sender, not to the mailing list - this may differ from the way other
lists work.  If your mailer supports the Group Reply facility ('G' or 'g'
in Elm) or a 'reply to all' command, this should direct your reply to
both the list and the original sender.

Who else is on the list?
------------------------

There are currently around 80 subscribers to this list from countries
all around the world.

A list of current members may be obtained by sending a message containing
the line 'get members.txt' (the subject line is ignored) to
mailserv@grempc.demon.co.uk.  This information is NOT made publically
available elsewhere to prevent the addresses being trawled for junk
emailing.

Mailing list digests and archives
---------------------------------

Digests are not available, the traffic is usually very low.
Archives are kept but not presently publically available nor searchable.

Where is the FAQ?
-----------------

You're reading it ;-)  We don't actually get many FAQs so don't be afraid
to post any Dragon related questions to the list.

Related newsgroups
------------------

An attempt was made to create the newsgroup alt.comp.dragon but
this has not propagated widely as is the nature of alt.* groups.
alt.comp.dragon should be be available on Demon Internet's public
newsservers pubnews.demon.co.uk or pubnews.demon.nl
Please ensure that accessing external newsservers does not break any local
site policy.

  bit.listserv.coco
  comp.emulators.misc
  comp.os.os9
