Dear Python users,

Well I have to say, all of you are extremely efficient at replying to
problems. However, this can be a problem. I am still receiving emails with
the subject "OS Commands". ALL of these e-mails say the SAME thing (i.e.
that I should call os.system(.....) ) even though the discussion had since
moved on. Quite a few of these e-mails are going to my own personal address
as opposed to the python list (which is causing my mail sorter lots of
problems!) - although to be fair I have made that mistake myself.

This is not a flame but can users of the list please please please follow
discussions and respond if and only if they have something new to offer.
That way the world will be a little less noisy for us all :o)
