Just a quick note to let you know that this issue of TidBITS is going out to exactly 40,000 people on our mailing list. Our list goes up significantly each day (between 50 and 100 people), although we also delete several hundred people each week due to mail problems. Still, we've been hovering around this 40,000 point for a few months and it's nice to achieve it finally. [ACE]
