Some time ago I downloaded the Scouts-L file list. Have reviewed it, and
find a number of items that look as if they would be useful. A few questions
1. Is there an easy way to get a group of files (i.e. if i want all of the
eagletips or ceremonies)
2. Can more than one GET command be entered on a single message to LISTSERV?
If so, what is the protocol - commas, periods, line return between commands?
3. Is there a limit to how many can be requested in a period (day, week,
4. How quickly do the files get sent by the LISTSERV - a day, two, three,
week? (I'm looking to do it at the end of my monthly period - use whatever
time I've got left from AOL, but that means it has to be early enough to get
back before the billing date)
I think somewhere in the dark past I remember seeing answers to some of this,
but can't find it in my cluttered organizing ;-)) system.
Thanks for your help
