I emailed this list quite a while ago about not getting emails

slow to respond AT&T crew about unblocking the emails. This

first set of emails. Whoooooooo Ooooooooooo. I have so
missed getting my emails and keeping up with where Gentoo is
going and what issues have cropped up with updates.
I've one word of advice for you: gmane
IMO, gmane is really the only civilized way to read mailing
lists. Pointing a good newsreader (I like slrn) at
news.gmane.org allows one to follow mailing lists with far less
effort/hassle -- and you never have to worry about mailboxes
You also ought to switch to an ISP that doesn't suck, but
that's a different issue.
Well, since I am on dial-up, I prefer to read most of my stuff offline.
It's easier for me at least. I did try to mess with gmane but never
could figure out how to make it work. Sort of gave up on it.
Right now, I'm planning to switch ISPs if DSL doesn't come soon. I'm
paying ~$24.00 for dial-up but DSL would be only ~$20.00 and DSL is
faster. Go figure out how backward that is. I mentioned that to the
firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list
