<blockquote TYPE=CITE>Your address has been added to the addresses that
comprise this Listserv
<br>Welcome to HISTONET. This is an electronic mailing list for the exchange
<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
<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
<br>the subscriber list. Email uses the vast expanse of the Internet to
<br>almost instantaneous communication between networked computers around
<br>world. Our system uses the LISTSTAR software from Quarterdeck Corporation
<br>(California) and can currently send about 30 messages a minute.
<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
<br>may find Histonet informative and useful. Currently, there are more
<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
<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.
<br>hardware and software owned by the University of Texas Southwestern
<br>School, Department of Pathology in Dallas, Texas. If you have any questions
<br>problems with Histonet please contact Linda Margraf at
<p>HOW DOES THE LIST WORK?
<br>This server, unlike many systems, uses ONLY ONE ADDRESS to send commands
<br>the computer and to post messages. The server will recognize commands
<br>the SUBJECT line of the message and only when they are spelled exactly
<br>listed below. Anything not identified as a command will be circulated
<br>EVERYONE on the list.
<p>The following is a list of commands the server recognizes:
<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
<br> Your address will be added to the list of subscribers who receive
<br>instead of each forwarded message. A digest is a compilation of all
<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
<br>messages the same as "real-time" subscribers.
<br> A list of available digests will be returned to you. Histonet
<br>messages as daily digests for approximately three months. To
<br>messages, copy the list of available digests, mark the dates
of interest and
<br>return it to the server.
<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.
<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,
<br>opportunities are all appropriate topics. The University asks that
<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
<br>commercial interests in histology products are welcome contributors
<br>we ask that blatant advertisements be avoided at all times. It is fine
<br>refer to product that your company produces if it is pertinent to a
<br>being discussed on the list. Unsolicited advertisements are poorly
<br>by the members and you will likely receive a number of negative comments
<br>you overstep the boundaries. Please contact Linda Margraf at
<br>LMargraf@childmed.dallas.tx.us 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
<br>to everyone on the list and not just as a personal reply to the person
<br>the question. That way duplicate messages are minimized and we all
<br>each other's comments.
<p>Likewise, if you post a question and get a number of responses back
<br>to you, it is helpful to everyone if you could send out a summary of
<br>replies you got to Histonet.
<p>Please avoid abbreviations unless they are explained in your message.
<br>example: immunohistochemistry (IHC). This list circulates to a wide
<br>individuals and what seems obvious to you may have no meaning on the
<br>side of the world.
<p>Please sign your letter and include your institution or affiliation
<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
<br>LMargraf@childmed.dallas.tx.us and don't circulate them to the >850
<br>subscribers on the list. Be careful when sending commands to the server
<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
<br>images at our web site (<a href="http://pathcuri1.swmed.edu">http://pathcuri1.swmed.edu</a>).
To have an image posted
<br>send it to Herb Hagler at email@example.com.
