    | At about 12:45AM Central Time Tuesday (23 hours  ago), a message was sent to

    | I received this message in my  e-mail inbox shortly after it was sent. Just
    | so we're all clear on this, the  message was sent to Navigation-L, not NavList.
    | This message presently  does not appear in the list archive for Navigation-L,
    | and I haven't seen any  replies to it from the list either. It's the sort of
    | message that would  ordinarily generate a fair bit of traffic. This, to me,
    | strongly suggests that  there is a continuing problem with distribution of
    | messages to Navigation-L. How  many of you received this message late last night?
    | How many did not receive  it?
    Frank is right about this; there are serious problems of message distribution 
    in Nav-l or in its Webkahuna host.
    The message Frank refers to hasn't got to me, yet, but (on present 
    performance) it might, within the next day or so..
    Nor did a message enthreaded "compass card with more than 360 degrees". That 
    has got to Lu Abel, because I can read his reply, but
    not (yet) to me.
    There's something seriously amiss, but Dan seems reluctant to accept that, and 
    prefers to blame list members and their ISPs. It
    calls for
    some investigation.
