Mailing Lists

Discussion lists are an effective and widely used platform for interaction among groups of people, providing opportunities for collaboration, information sharing and forming virtual communities. Discussion lists can operate with or without monitoring by a list owner or editor, known as moderation. Examples of discussion lists include technical support forums, interest groups, fan clubs and professional networks. Members of a discussion list communicate around a given focus topic. Each member can send messages to the list for distribution to all subscribers.

Many companies and organizations are using discussion lists to enhance customer communication and to build internal workgroups. Discussion lists are ideal for exchanging expertise, obtaining feedback and fostering collaboration among geographically dispersed work team members. When administering discussion lists, it is important to use full-featured email list management software. The software should provide double opt-in functionality and an easy-to-use interface for group members to automatically subscribe, unsubscribe and change their email addresses or subscription settings. Naturally, the software should also automatically handle bounces or delivery errors, maintain message archives and provide security features that keep the groups free from viruses and spam.


Mailing lists

Zshell mailing list
Great list for discussing all aspects of Zshell, from available applications to programming. Send a letter to es.anutnellos.kbr.vrestsil|omodrojam#es.anutnellos.kbr.vrestsil|omodrojam with the message body saying "subscribe list-zshell" if you'd like to join. To join LZB, the binaries list, follow the same procedure except use "subscribe list-zshell-binaries".

Connect-85 mailing list
Nice list for discussing Magnus Hagander's CONNECT-85 software. Send a letter to es.anutnellos.kbr.vrestsil|omodrojam#es.anutnellos.kbr.vrestsil|omodrojam with the message "subscribe connect-85" in the body of the letter.

Graph-TI
Similar to the bit.listserv.graph-ti newsgroup, but with an emphasis on educational uses of TI calculators. A great list for teachers; send a letter to moc.it.ppp.stsil|vrestsil#moc.it.ppp.stsil|vrestsil with the message "SUBSCRIBE Graph-TI Firstname Lastname".


Texas Instruments: Calculator Discussion Groups (http://www.ti.com/calc/docs/newsgrp.htm)

This link contains info on two email lists related to TI Graphing Calculators:

Calc-TI
Graph-TI

The Usenet newsgroups (news:bit.listserv.graph-ti) bit.listserv.graph-ti and bit.listserv.calc-ti contain the same messages as their respective mailing lists.

Graph-TI and Calc-TI E-Mail Lists
Graph-TI, an e-mail interest group, allows users of Texas Instruments graphing calculators to share ideas and solve problems together. It is provided by Texas Instruments in support of educators. Users of Graph-TI discuss:

Applications of graphing calculators in math, science, and engineering.
Sources of additional information.
Instructional and pedagogical issues using graphing calculators.

Calc-TI, an interest group similar to Graph-TI, but intended to support the programming hobbyist with more technical information and discussions.

Graph-TI and Calc-TI are available to anyone with access to electronic mail on the Internet.

Calc-TI USENET Newsgroup
If you have newsreader access, subscribe to bit.listserv.calc-ti.
This newsgroup is connected to the Calc-TI e-mail discussion group and will provide the same information as being subscribed to the e-mail list. If you have access to USENET newsgroups, you may find this to be the most convenient approach.


TICALC.ORG MAILING LISTS AND LIST ARCHIVES

All ticalc.org mailing lists are run from the server lists.ticalc.org and are administered by ticalc.org staff. Several rules and regulations apply to all lists hosted on that server. Please visit our Site Policies section for our mailing list rules.

To subscribe to a list on lists.ticalc.org, send an email from the address where you want to receive your mail (which must be the same as the address you will be posting from) to:

<listname>gro.clacit.stsil|tseuqer-#gro.clacit.stsil|tseuqer-

Leave the subject line empty, and in the body of the message, type:

SUBSCRIBE <listname>

where <listname> is the name of the mailing list you want to subscribe to. You should momentarily receive a request from the mailing list server to confirm that you want to subscribe to the list. Follow the instructions in the confirmation email and you will be subscribed to the list.

To unsubscribe from a list on lists.ticalc.org, send an email from the address you used when you subscribed (this is important!) to:

<listname>gro.clacit.stsil|tseuqer-#gro.clacit.stsil|tseuqer-

Leave the subject line empty, and in the body of the message, type:

UNSUBSCRIBE <listname>

where <listname> is the name of the mailing list you want to unsubscribe from. You should momentarily receive confirmation from the mailing list server that you have been successfully unsubscribed.

All the ticalc.org mailing lists are available in "digest mode." This means that the mailing list server will collect all email sent to the mailing list and send them out periodically in a single email containing all messages posted since the list digest email was sent. Digest emails will normally be sent once a day, but will be sent more often if there is a large amount of traffic on the list. See the instructions received upon subscription for information on how to set your subscription to digest mode.

The following mailing lists are hosted by ticalc.org. Click on a mailing list's name to visit the subscription management page for that list.

If you were automatically unsubscribed from our mailing lists, it's likely because your email account was bouncing messages back to our listserver or mailing list mail could not be delivered for some other reason. You will either be unsubscribed or set as nomail in Mailman, which means that you will receive no mail on the list. When you have corrected your problem, resubscribe to the list.

MAILING LIST ARCHIVES

There are no actively-updated mailing list archives available at this time.

A set of older archives spanning from late 1996 to early 2004 is available.


MAILING LIST POLICIES

All ticalc.org mailing lists are run from the server lists.ticalc.org and are administered by ticalc.org staff. The following rules and regulations apply to all lists hosted on that server:

Basic rules of netiquette. No flames. If you feel an irreistable urge to flame somebody, do it in private email to that person.

Stay on topic. Each mailing list has a clearly-defined topic. Stick to that topic. If necessary, move a discussion to another mailing list if it spins off to cover a different topic.

A user may only post from an address that is subscribed to the list he/she is posting to. If you have multiple email addresses, make sure you use the correct one.

No cross-posts. Never cross-post an email to multiple lists. All users are not subscribed to all lists, and they are not interested in all topics. If you have a posting that is urgent and that is proper on multiple mailing lists, post separate emails to all of the lists. Multiple To or Cc's cause a lot of problems.

All messages on the lists are limited to a size of 30K. Mailing lists are not intended for posting of binaries (such as programs). Upload these files to FTP- or Web-based archives (such as ticalc.org) instead, and post the URL to where people can download the file.

Please post your mails as plain text. Do not use RTF or HTML-mail, since many mail program don't handle it, and many people do not want it.

All posts to these lists are archived on ticalc.org. By subscribing, you agree that ticalc.org may post the complete contents of anything you send to the mailinglists on ticalc.org.

Each user posting to the lists is responsible for whatever he/she says. ticalc.org is in no way responsible for anything posted to the lists.

The lists are unmoderated. Once an email is posted, it will be sent out to all recipients. ticalc.org does not screen emails before they are sent out, and does not have the ability to recall messages. Please do not ask us to do that.

Inappropriate material will be deleted from the mailing list archives on this web site.

If mail to a user repeatedly bounces (for example, due to a mailbox running out of space), the user in question will be removed from all ticalc.org mailing lists. When the situation is sorted out on the user's mail server, he/she is free to resubscribe to the lists.

Failure to comply with the rules listed above after fair warning will lead to unsubscription and banning from all ticalc.org mailing lists.
