Time for a Fetch Refresh?

In the Fetch FTP client, if you see a time stamp like "As of 6/19/10 2:29 PM" above the file list, that means that Fetch is re-using a file list it downloaded earlier. Click the swooshing-arrow refresh button (located beside the time stamp) to refresh the list.

Due to various and sundry travel plans, we may not release the next few issues on our usually strict Monday night schedule. If you don't see one on time, just check in another day or two. If you miss an issue, you can retrieve it via email by sending a message to <listserv@ricevm1.rice.edu> with this line in the body of the message:

$MAC GET tidbits-234.etx

Replace the number with the number of the issue you think you missed, and the LISTSERV will return the file via email. This works for the last 60 issues or so. [ACE]
