This is an electronic mailing list for the exchange of <br>information pertaining to histotechnology and related fields. <p>PLEASE SAVE THIS MESSAGE. <br>It contains useful information about how to use the list and what to do if you <br>experience problems. It also includes some basic rules for email etiquette <br>(Netiquette) which will be helpful to those who are new to this form of <br>communication. <p>WHAT IS A LISTSERVER? <br>A list server is a computer that runs software which will receive incoming <br>electronic mail (email) messages and reroute them automatically to everyone on <br>the subscriber list. Email uses the vast expanse of the Internet to allow <br>almost instantaneous communication between networked computers around the <br>world. Our system uses the LISTSTAR software from Quarterdeck Corporation <br>(California) and can currently send about 30 messages a minute.  With the <br>present number of subscribers, we are processing about 10,000 outbound <br>messages a day. <p>WHO SHOULD SUBSCRIBE? <br>Anyone interested in research or clinical applications of histology, <br>immunohistochemistry, in-situ hybridization pathology, and electron microscopy <br>may find Histonet informative and useful. Currently, there are more than 850 <br>subscribers from all over the world. Subscribers include hospital employees <br>from major urban centers and obscure remote locales, university researchers, <br>botanists and the employees of commercial laboratories, government agencies, <br>veterinary facilities and a wide variety of commercial industrial ventures. <p>WHO RUNS HISTONET? <br>The list is run by Linda R. Margraf, M.D. and Herb K. Hagler, Ph.D. using <br>hardware and software owned by the University of Texas Southwestern Medical <br>School, Department of Pathology in Dallas, Texas. If you have any questions or <br>problems with Histonet please contact Linda Margraf at <br> <p>HOW DOES THE LIST WORK? <br>This server, unlike many systems, uses ONLY ONE ADDRESS to send commands to <br>the computer and to post messages. The server will recognize commands sent in <br>the SUBJECT line of the message and only when they are spelled exactly as <br>listed below. Anything not identified as a command will be circulated to <br>EVERYONE on the list. <p>The following is a list of commands the server recognizes: <p>subscribe <br> Your address will be added to the list of subscribers. You will then be able <br>to send messages to this list that will be forwarded to all other list <br>subscribers. You will begin to receive all messages sent to the list by other <br>subscribers. <p>subscribe digest <br> Your address will be added to the list of subscribers who receive a digest <br>instead of each forwarded message. A digest is a compilation of all the <br>messages received in a 24 hour period. It is sent to the digest subscribers <br>every night after midnight. Digest subscribers can post and respond to <br>messages the same as "real-time" subscribers. <p>digests <br> A list of available digests will be returned to you. Histonet stores old <br>messages as daily digests for approximately three  months. To read previous <br>messages, copy the list of available  digests, mark the dates of interest and <br>return it to the server. <p>unsubscribe <br> Your address will be removed from the list of subscribers. <br> You will no longer be able to send messages to the members <br> of the list. <p>help <br> A list of the commands recognized by the server will be   returned to you. <p>WHAT ARE THE RULES? <br>You may post any questions you wish pertaining to histology, pathology, <br>in-situ hybridization, immunohistochemistry etc. Equipment and reagent <br>evaluations, laboratory management issues, government regulations, and job <br>opportunities are all appropriate topics. The University asks that we restrict <br>the use of its hardware and software to business purposes only (occasional <br>jokes do slip through but PLEASE use restraint). Vendors and those with <br>commercial interests in histology products are welcome contributors however, <br>we ask that blatant advertisements be avoided at all times. It is fine to <br>refer to product that your company produces if it is pertinent to a topic <br>being discussed on the list. Unsolicited advertisements are poorly tolerated <br>by the members and you will likely receive a number of negative comments if <br>you overstep the boundaries. Please contact Linda Margraf at <br> if you are not sure about the appropriateness <br>if a message you wish to post. <p>BASIC HISTONET "NETIQUETTE" <br>It is most helpful to the list members if you post your responses to queries <br>to everyone on the list and not just as a personal reply to the person asking <br>the question. That way duplicate messages are minimized and we all learn from <br>each other's comments. <p>Likewise, if you post a question and get a number of responses back directly <br>to you, it is helpful to everyone if you could send out a summary of the <br>replies you got to Histonet. <p>Please avoid abbreviations unless they are explained in your message. For <br>example: immunohistochemistry (IHC). This list circulates to a wide variety of <br>individuals and what seems obvious to you may have no meaning on the other <br>side of the world. <p>Please sign your letter and include your institution or affiliation and <br>location. Not all email systems have headers which identify the sender. <p>Do use the subject line to indicate the topic of your message. <p>DON'T USE ONLY CAPITAL LETTERS -it is considered shouting. <p>Please send questions and problems about the list directly to Linda Margraf at <br> and don't circulate them to the >850 <br>subscribers on the list. Be careful when sending commands to the server to put <br>the command in the SUBJECT LINE and spell it correctly. <p>Please do not send images as attachments with your message. We can now post <br>images at our web site (<a href=""></a>). To have an image posted <br>send it to Herb Hagler at <p>es</blockquote> <p>-- <br>Hugo M.
