After a long hiatus, I am planning to restart the blog.
I-LIST and DR-LIST have been very successful. It turns out that I
sent out 235 messages to I-LIST and 239 messages to DR-LIST since the
last posting in this blog. Sending email from elm is much easier for me
than logging on to the blog server and editing html pages. At the same
time, maintaining a blog presence is also quite important to reach out
to new audiences.
