The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 48, November 26, 2006, Article 2

ON CELEBRATING OUR 1000TH SUBSCRIBER

Ken Berger writes: "I see no reason to give the 1000th subscriber
any special gift or book or whatever.  It is purely by the luck of
the draw that that individual is the 1000th subscriber. Simple
recognition should be sufficient.

If anybody is to receive a book or medal or special gift or whatever,
it should be you. Also, you say you have 1000 subscribers, are they
all active? Are they all still living? If not, then you only have a
list of 1000 individuals who at one time or the other are (or were)
receiving The E-Sylum."

[It is indeed luck of the draw.  And there is no cumulative list of
subscribers, just a snapshot of the mailing list as it stands today.
People subscribe randomly, and some subscribe under multiple email
addresses.  Sometimes they unsubscribe.  More often, they switch
email addresses and later resubscribe under a new address.  Their
old address eventually goes away when our email list provider gets
bounced messages from the obsolete address.  So what we're celebrating
is the symbolic milestone of the mailing list growing to 1,000
current addresses. -Editor]

Bob Rightmire writes: "I tend not to get caught up with a single
number; numbers 999 or even 299 are important too. After publishing
subscriber 1000's name, the spotlight should then turn to the very
"publication" that we are reading. Might this be a time to honor
all those, with you leading the way, who have made this wonderful
source of information available? I indeed feel fortunate to be part
of this circle."

Jerry Roschwalb writes: "To all who are involved in producing this
interesting and informative publication, congratulations and thank
you for all your successful efforts and results.  My best wishes to
you for wonderful and joyful holidays and a productive and healthful
2007."

[As noted last week, knowing that the effort is appreciated by such
a great group of readers is what keeps me going each week.  Thanks!!
