RE: Re: What is the delay?

Thanks Chris-- sounds like a horribly boring job to delete and send all by
hand.  You really are going to be sainted one of these days!

Hi Ceres,

    Donna was partially right in saying that this was because of the big
    Internet worm that's been going around.  A mail loop over the weekend
    caused one of the hort.net disks to fill up with lots and lots of
    copies of the worm (no, we weren't infected), so when the disks ran
    out of room the lists stopped working.

    I have a backup mechanism in place to save the messages if this
    happens, so I went through each message in the backup, made sure that
    it hadn't been resent to the list, and then resent it myself.

    The end result is that some messages on the weekend of Aug. 30th
    ended up going through the list a few days late.  This happened to
    all of the hort.net lists.

    Sorry about the confusion.  I'm now writing a script to monitor the
    disk space and remove unnecessary files (as well as notify me) if
    the same situation presents itself again, so hopefully we can avoid
    the delayed emails.
