WriteLog Reflector: Frequently Asked Questions
Last revised: 27 June 1999
This FAQ answers the following questions:
WriteLog is a contest logging program written by Wayne Wright, W5XD. Designed for Windows 95, 98 and NT, WriteLog is the premier Windows-based contest logging software available today. The most notable feature is its support for RTTY, CW, and SSB contest logging. RTTY and Voice operation is supported using the computer's sound card.
WriteLog@CONTESTING.COM is an electronic mailing list ("reflector") for discussing the WriteLog software. This is the place to ask questions, report bugs and suggest new features. In addition, updates to WL are announced here.
Each message you send to WriteLog@CONTESTING.COM will be sent out to all the other subscribers. Therefore, it's important to think about what you're going to say, and how you're going to say it, before you send the message.
Also remember that many subscribers receive their E-mail through commercial services such as CompuServe and MCImail. In essence, many people are paying for each byte of every message sent to the mail reflector. So please follow the following simple rules:
Simply send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following text in the BODY of the mail message:
A better way, however, is to include your name and callsign in the message to wl-user-request, for example:
subscribe email@example.com (Ron Stailey K5DJ)
This can also be helpful if you want your mailing address to be different than your usual REPLY address. For example, if you log into multiple workstations that are all in the same domain. Use your own E-mail address, name and callsign -- not what's in the example!
There is also a DIGEST format of this list. You will receive all the day's messages in a single message, mailed out about 11:45 p.m. Eastern time (USA). To subscribe, send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following text in the BODY of the mail message:
If you are subscribed to the digest, you will still be able to post messages to the WL-USER reflector.
Send a message to email@example.com with the following text in the BODY of the mail message:
If you subscribed with an address that was different than your usual REPLY address, you will have to include that address in the request, for example:
unsubscribe firstname.lastname@example.org (Ron Stailey K5DJ)
If you want to unsubscribe from the digest, send a message to email@example.com with the following in the body of the mail message:
Please do not send "SUBSCRIBE" or "UNSUBSCRIBE" requests to firstname.lastname@example.org!
