the digest goes out:
1) when there are 40,000 bytes or more of collected messages
2) when a message arrives and it has been more than 24 hour since the last
previously, i had a timer set to send a digest out early every morning;
we're trying the new mechanism to see if it's an improvement.
finally, it appears that more than a few readers may not have made the
transition to the new server very well. i didn't really want to do the
cutover the way i did; i was afraid we'd loose people, but there were a lot
of problem addresses on the old list, and i needed to find a way to purge them.
i saw one complaint about "why did he change it?".
the reason is simple. this new server will end up saving me a bunch of
money; hopefully i'll not have to go out and ask for donations to support
the lists ever again.
there are other reasons, too, but cutting costs is a biggie.
