Here’s a weird one. We pay a commercial service to send out our post show e-mails on Call for Help and The Screen Savers. Unfortunately the contract was so constructed that when we went past a certain number of e-mails a month the cost skyrocketed.
At its peak CFH was sending out 120,000 e-mails a day and The Screen Savers 90,000. We did a forced re-subscribe when the shows changed last month, but we’re still sending out something like 60,000 messages a day. We ran through our e-mail budget in just a few months and management is pulling the plug on the show notes.
Until we can figure out a way to do it more cheaply (I wish they’d asked me – I could have done it for one tenth the cost with a simple listserv) we’re using Yahoo Groups to send out an unofficial show notes e-mail for both shows.
You’ll have to resubscribe – yes, yet again – at our web site. I’m sorry for all the confusion. It’s not pretty I know. But, hey, at least it’s because we’re more successful than anyone expected!
