OK, I am an idiot. Where do I go to read about things such as: how do I set up a ping?

I've come across this frequently: No such file (give_legacy_article) but... is there an active repository somewhere?

A ping list is just the screen names of those you wish to “ping” or alert to a certain thread, separated by semi-colons.

It is considered impolite to put individuals on a ping list without their permission (ie. sorta like spam).

I just "bumped" your thread, and I "pinged" All.

Create a list of recipients separated by semi-colons on a desktop stickie or document file. Then cut and paste it in the “To:” line. Then put the word “Ping” in the Reply section.

And another thing, a ping list should have a snappy name... like “The Mangled Genitals Ping List” (yes there is one) and cool graphics.

DOn't you think you are pushing your luck, posting two vanities in two days with essentially the same topic?

Sweetie, wasn’t yesterday enough? Your best bet on that 404 message is to google it and see if it is cached, or posted at a different location. If you want an “active repository,” you have to create one yourself.

Don’t take the ribbing personally, most new posters get the same thing.

Just plow ahead and have fun.
