nanog digest now available

  • From: Allan Chong

Since I couldn't find a partner to do E.Buttress of Middle Cathedral
in Yosemite this weekend, I wasted a couple of hours and installed a
nanog digest on a friend's server.

Right now, normal nanog mail will go to my account on the machine
and then through procmail (which I've never really used before).
I've hacked out a perl script to format up a digest with subjects
at the top and cron it out at noon and say, 6pm.  Users will
be added manually by mailing me at:

allan@alum.mit.edu

I will setup the procmail as needed.  Please email me your working
procmail scripts to filter your favorite net
kooks^H^H^H^H^Hpersonalities.  I think the rule will be, "if you
annoy me or another digest member, you're filtered."  
Later, I might add something to show the messages that got deleted, so
everyone can know what they're missing.

Yes, I know I could have done it with majordomo, but this just
uses a normal account on the machine without having to play with
their mail setup.

I'm currently waiting on the subscription approval for the bogus
user.

PS.  The digest looks like:
