[OS X TeX] our apologies for the email chaos

As you I am sure you are aware, an autoresponder from 
garbage at 4readers.com caused a biblical number of messages to be send to 
all list subscribers early this morning (U.S. time). I had an early 
morning meeting, so I didn't check my email before leaving for work (as 
I usually do). Fortunately, I got a call from one of my graduate 
students (Andy Miller) during the meeting notifying me of the problem 
and he unsubscribed the offender. All has been back to normal since 
about 8 or 9 hours ago.

Again, I apologize for the chaos this caused. If it's any consolation 
(though it's probably not), I had 4976 messages waiting for me when I 
finally got out of my meeting and checked my email at 12:30 PM. The 
list will be sending out the digest in about 40 minutes -- I feel for 
the digest subscribers. :-)

One more thing -- I will try and cull the nonsense from the digest 
before posting it to the Archives page.

All the best,

-- Gary
