subscribeIf you want to get the mailings in digest form, use
subscribe change-ringers-digestinstead. Similarly, to unsubscribe send mail from the address at which you are receiving the mailings at with the body
unsubscribe change-ringers-digestif you are getting the digest. These commands subscribe or unsubscribe you at the mailing address found in the "from" line of your message. If you want to subscribe at a different address, or to ask that someone else be subscribed, you can use the form
subscribe change-ringers user@siteor
subscribe change-ringers user@site (Real Name)Please do not use this syntax unless you really need to. Doing it this way means that I have to approve your request by hand. Similarly, under normal circumstances you should tell your friends to subscribe themselves, rather than sending subscribe messages for them.
You can get the lists of subscribers by sending to email@example.com a message with the body
who change-ringers who change-ringers-digestThis is a good way to find email addresses for ringers.
The personal name that appears in this list is whatever goes out as part of the "from" line in the mail you send to subscribe. If you have set your personal name to a cute string, that's what's going to appear in place of your name in this list.
There is an archive of files of interest to change ringers associated with the mailing list. You can look at the archive by anonymous FTP to the machine ctp.mit.edu (a.k.a. ctpa01.mit.edu).
You can also read the archives by email, using the majordomo program, the same one which maintains the mailing list. Start by sending email with the body
helpto firstname.lastname@example.org . Please use FTP if you can. It puts a lot less load on my machine.
There is a similar list for boston-area events.
