    Have I lost my mind? Didn't we use to get our e-mail distribution at 5am instead of 5pm. I like waking up in the morning to a new edition. With the new evening time I can't stop myself from looking and have nothing to read when I have my coffee in the morning. Any one know why the change?

    I got mine early this morning. Maybe your ISP has slowed things down?

    Haven't received mine yet and it's 8:30 AM. Am used to reading the board over morning coffee and then having breakfast. Looks like that habit is going to change. JUST SO WE GET IT DAILY ......... PLEASE!

    You don't have to wait for the email. Just put the url in your favorites. That's what I do. No wait involved! :-D :-D And I'm always a happy camper in the morning! :-D

    Suspect it is due to the admin change?

    Is it a good newsletter and worth signing up for? I have thought about it several times but I don't want zillions of emails every day or any junk mail. Is it just once a day or once a week? How does it work? :?:

    i always go straight the board using my internet browser. i've never used an email to get here.

    i've only recently begun to hear that some people to use their emails as a portal.

    to each her own, of course, but i much prefer to come and go as i please ... not as my mail server decides for me. :lol:

    Nonononono - it's a convenience thing. You turn on your computer and go to check the emails - viola, a digest is there to peruse. You click the link and viola (again) your in the "new topics" section. Love it! Now, during the day I use the "my favorites" or just click the top bar to get back to this site. It gets me going on a chilly, dark morning...........;o)

    Be happy that you are getting the e-mail at all. Mine just stopped coming and administrator has told me it won't be coming back until mid March. Have to URL every day to get here.

    even faster ... create a shortcut to the board on your desktop.

    to get started, right click anywhere on the desktop.

    perhaps not as convenient for dial-up, but if you're on a direct-connection, we're just a double-click away. :-)

    I use email because I get redirected a lot and it doesn't happen with email. I'm going to try this shortcut idea. Thanks!

    And the late delivery on the notices started a long time ago, long before the announcement of the new admin.
