Intro (2005)

This whole list is an unfinished work in progress...

Most questions can be answered by reading...
http://www.listal.com/list/listal-help-list">Listal Help List


by searching
http://www.listal.com/forums">The Listal Forum

Currently I am using this list to consolidate some information I posted or have found helpful on the Listal Forum. This in no way should conflict or undermined any other help documentation or future official FAQ projects.

Most links are to blog postings. This is just easier for me edit and easier to share blog postings.

If you wish to add or edit information on this list or on the blog please let me know. I in no way consider any of this my intellectual property but the property of Listal and all the wonderful Listal members who have been helpful over the years.

This is pretty helpful. I can't wait to see what it will look like in its complete state.
Posted: 6 years, 7 months ago at Jul 27 20:06
Don't think it will ever be complete but just stand as a random patchwork collection of information. That anyone is free to contribute or take from.

I'm hoping to spend some time off line towards the end of August so... I'm feeling very slack about the whole idea.

OK, yes... the list is now public but still rather ugly.

I have added a few new blog posts this month and have a few more in the works. This list is bound to always look rough. Still, any feedback is helpful.

Ha, I think I have been on Listal so long that I really not sure what new members might need to know or have problems figuring out. So... questions highly encouraged :)

This is spectacular! Well done!
Posted: 4 years, 9 months ago at Jun 2 19:49
Blog moved so had to change all the links... simple enough. Ah, and no there is nothing new on this list. There will be a whole new FAQ soon.
