Is the LISTSERV stuttering?

Hi everyone,

I have to ask you something here.

Just one hour ago or so, I received from the list a bunch of about 60 posts,
all dating from last Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. The strangest thing is that
all those posts I had already received once (including my own posts). At first
I thought the problem came from my mail account (I'm currently experimenting
problems with it), but mails from other origins than the list that I received
during those three days didn't show up again. So I think the problem comes from
the list itself.

So, did you, like me, receive suddenly a bunch of mails that you had already
received? What's happening? Is the listserv suffering from something?

I send this mail directly to David Durand too, in case this sudden burst would
have put the number of mails above the limit and put it to a hold. Maybe he can
see what's gone wrong... (sorry David, I didn't remember whether your .edu
address still worked, so I've sent the message to both addresses I know are
yours. Sorry for the inconvenience)


Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
