Thanks, Chris, for your tip... While I am posting here, I am curious to know the routine of Gmail users receiving their mailing lists on their regular web browsers. (This is how I read my mail too). I usually hit "answer to all"... Maybe there's a better way ?
**I*use*'Reply*to*all'*and simply cut/paste the list adress*from*the*'Cc:' to the 'To:' field to avoid sending off-list replies.

encouraged to stay with stable. However, there is some limited security
support for testing:
Good read ! I must say I was not aware ! (that shows me my ignorance ;o) )... Anyway, apart from my main desktop and my PPC laptop, which are both running Testing, all other PC's are on Stable... But I really enjoy learning a bit more everyday, thanks Chris !
**The*releases*may*not*be*as*often*as*some*other distros*but when debian says 'stable' it means it.

In short: Everything which could have a noticable impact on the Debian
Project or its user base.
-Can we just send articles about our use of Debian, or views, opinion etc... ?
