Hello again: I am back from my unwanted vacation. The "issues" have been handled.
My thanks to Fred Goldstein for his help during my hiatus: the system didn't work as well as we had hoped, but I'm grateful to Fred for being willing to step up and volunteer.
Thanks also go to those who sent solicitations: I appreciate your kind words.
And now, for my next trick, I'll *PLAN* my vacation (which is, come to think of it, coming up) and hope that I get better at handing the Digest over to pinch-hitters while I'm away.
