About a week ago I posted a message saying that Ponds-L 
had moved and gave the new address and how to 
subscribe, I made an error in the subscribing 
directions, I had said to send a message to 
listserv at execpc.com with the message 

subscribe ponds-l [your name] example subscribe ponds-l 
John Doe

This is incorrect, when done this way the listserver 
thinks that John Doe is your e-mail address.

The correct way to subscribe to ponds-l is to send an 
e-mail message to listserv at execpc.com with the 
following message

subscribe ponds-l

The name must be left off with the new Majordomo 
software that we are using for this list.

The following people tried to subscribe using this 
incorrect information, and if they are in your group I 
hope they will read this and subscribe again using the 
correct information.

If you are interested in Ponds & Lakes here are the 
names of some other excellent groups that you might 
want to try:

A newsgroup that is directed towards the owners of 
decorative & ornamental ponds.  For people that enjoy 
water gardening, Koi, goldfish and other fish as a 
hobby, this group is very informative.

A newsgroup that is directed towards aquaculture and 
fishery management on a very scientific and technical 
level.  If you are a serious fish grower or have a 
strong interest in the ecological aspects of the 
fishery around the world this is very good news group 
that might be right for you.. 

This is a mail list that deals with a wide variety of 
larger lake issues. Some of the topics that are covered 
are as follows:

Lake Management ideas; analytical tools, hardware and 
procedures related to lake ecology and lakes; all lake 
related biological, geological, and scientific topics. 
Particular emphasis is placed on behavioral, 
evolutionary, paleontological, theoretical, and 
community ecology; including assessment and management 
by applied mathematics, statistics and modeling, 
mathematical GIS, limnology, chemical ecology, etc:

My appologies for the mistake and the waste of extra
