Lucinda, if you return to a particular month's HPN Archives after having
visited before sometime during that particular month, you probably have to
click "Reload" or "Refresh" (probably in the top line of your Internet
Browser Window).  Then you will get any posts that were posted to HPN since
the date you first visited that particular month's Archives.

>I don't really know what a thread is,  anyway.

When someone posts, and others reply, that cluster of posts is a "thread".
The HPN software is supposed to put them all together (if noone has changed
the Subject line).

But sometimes the computah don' woik like it's suppos ta, and coughs.

>But still, I have some  missing entries,

I'm not sure why.  I haven't seen any sign that a post of yours "had
problems making the list", in computerese, "bounced".  I coulda missed
sumpin', tho.

>and Harmony's story is under my name.

Her _email_ on the planned news article came to me under her address
(correctly).  But you are right that the _Archives_ put your name and
address at the top of her post (although it's clearly signed by Harmony at
the bottom).  I don't know why, or how to fix it; shall I write to Sandy,
HPN's technical whiz, to see if she can fix the accidental name switch?

The Mailman software which "serves" HPN does things I can't begin to figure
out.  I am far more comfortaable in a Rainbow tee-pee than trying to sort
out computers.  (Actually, I want a tee-pee with an Internet hookup to a
computer which reads my mind and just DOES IT RIGHT, first time, every

Anyway, Lucinda, despite these "glitches" (computer problems), we shall
Carry On for a better world, or at least have some fun chatting online. --
