In the U.S., it's Labor Day, which most people here celebrate by not working, and I certainly hope they're enjoying themselves. We've sided with the rest of the world by painting the storm-battered trim on our house, releasing DealBITS, and publishing TidBITS. Speaking of TidBITS, last week's mailing list distribution of the TidBITS issue went well, and we're continuing to refine our tools and techniques. Please note that we've turned off the TidBITS list at the Rice University LISTSERV, which means that anyone who tries to subscribe via our old method will receive an error message. Please help spread the word far and wide that the way people subscribe to TidBITS is by sending email to <tidbits-on@tidbits.com>. [ACE]
