It's unfortunate that this announcement has come too late.  I saw only
the last few minutes and regret that I did not see all of it.  I wonder
whether there will be another Bravo screening in the near future?

Hey - This sounds wonderful, but according to the message, it's already
happened (4/22 and 4/23).  Is the announced date of the program correct?

Dear SHAKSPEReans:

As the two posting above indicate, an explanation for what happened with
the SHYLOCK announcement is in order.

To do so, I need to let members know what I do to bring SHAKSPER digests
to your mailboxes. I try to organize, edit, format, and mail the daily
digests at one sitting, if at all possible. At that time, I clear my
editor account of all messages sent to 
 This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
  that
are forwarded to me and those sent directly to 
 This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
 
(By the way, there is no need to send your submissions to both
addresses; that's just more work for me). After I clear my mailbox, I
consider my editing tasks complete for the day.

When another submission arrives after I have completed the daily
mailing, I scan it and save it to my hard drive with a number followed
by a keyword so that I can group similar subjects when I edit the
following day. Because my time, as with so many of you, is preciously
short, I seldom read an entire message until I am working on the digest
complying stage.

Dana's announcement arrived Friday morning after I had completed the
Friday mailing to the membership. I glanced at it, labeled it 1shylock,
and saved it to my hard drive in my EDIT folder.

Because I have overcome my severe obsessive compulsion to compile
digests seven days and week, Dana's message stayed in my EDIT folder
until yesterday morning when I read it and realized that the shows
(which I would have loved to have seen and taped) were over. Rather than
sending Dana an I-am-sorry-your-posting-is-out-of-date letter, I send
out the announcement both for the historical record and to alert members
of the existence of the program so that if (or rather when) it is
repeated I will be able to get the message to the members in a more
timely fashion.

If anyone is further interested in how I work with SHAKSPER, I wrote a
seminar paper related to this work for the 1997 SAA Annual Meeting in
Washington, D.C.: "The Politics of an Academic Discussion Group."  This
paper may be retrieved by send the command
