the Software View: test

The following is a test of "the Software View" mailing list. This is
merely a test. In the event, this was an actual emergency, ... (just
kidding :-)

Welcome back, gentle reader. "the Software View" has its own domain
name and Internet web site. The address and URL is:
I am in the process of moving all the archived, prior episodes to the
above web site.

Also, dear reader, there's news on the free email newsletter, mailing
list front. "the Software View" has moved its entire mailing list
operations to one of the most popular mailing list management packages.
It's a Unix software program called Majordomo. Majordomo is a program
which automates the management of Internet mailing lists. Commands are
sent to Majordomo via electronic mail to handle all aspects of list
maintainance. Once a list is set up, virtually all operations can be
performed remotely, requiring no intervention upon the postmaster of the
list site. Majordomo controls a list of addresses for some mail
transport system (like sendmail or smail) to handle. Majordomo itself
performs no mail delivery (though it has scripts to format and archive
messages). Go to:

And, without a doubt, the witty and acerbic writings will continue apace
to flow from the tip of my digital pen without abate. Future episodes
include XML, design patterns, increasing returns, network externalities,
cooking pot markets, Big Night, the Internet is a railroad, underlying
software laws, Tcl/Tk, and Y2K
