Dear subscribers,

Please note the following:

1. Spams (again...)
-------------------
There's nothing we can do against the magazine ad, other than
complain to the originator of the message. No doubt their
account has already been revoked by their Internet provider.
Please don't complain to the list; this only makes things worse.
Complaining to me doesn't help much either, since I am aware of
the problem. Believe me, things could be much worse if LISTSERV
did not stop most of these spamming attempts. The only real
solution would be to set up Biomch-L as an 'edited' list,
i.e. a human editor would review all messages before they are
distributed. This would be a lot of work, and we would lose some
of the speed of this medium. Right now, it does not seem to be
necessary (yet...).

2. Replying to Biomch-L messages
--------------------------------
Most (but not all) mail systems are set up to reply to the
originator of a message, rather than to the entire list. The
first time you reply to a Biomch-L message, you should watch
carefully. Your mail software will probably ask for
confirmation, before actually sending. Otherwise you may end up
sending a private message to all subscribers. This especially
applies to 'DIGEST' subscribers, their replies probably go to the
entire list by default.

3. Full text of ICR discussions
-------------------------------
About four years ago there was an interesting discussion on
Biomch-L on the use of instantaneous center of rotation
vs. a fixed center of rotation for analysis of joint moments,
power etc. I have placed the full text of these discussions on
LISTSERV. The file can be retrieved by sending 'GET ICR TOPIC'
to LISTSERV@nic.surfnet.nl. In light of the present discussions
on standardization, another file on 3D joint angle quantification
may be interesting. That file can be obtained using the request
'GET ANGLES3D TOPIC'.

4. Administrative messages
--------------------------
Please send messages related to your Biomch-L subscription
(signoff, unsubscribe etc.) to LISTSERV@nic.surfnet.nl. Do *NOT*
send such messages to Biomch-L. If LISTSERV can't help you,
please contact me or one of the other list moderators.
