'[TO] List Server Commands'

As all of you guys and gals know I have only recently joined this group and
after several tries have got my e-mail program to finally send plain text
(apologies to all for HTML). My question is how do I get the reference card
for the server commands? I have sent many requests to the listserver
(probably to the chagrin of the server controller) for "info refcard" and
the FAQ like it said to do on my joining e-mail, but the replies received
from the list server always come back blank with only some CPU usage
reported, Please what am I doing wrong?

I also see a lot of discussion lately on the PIClist archive, sorry if this
sounds naive, but can anybody advise me of the URL?


Regards Geoff :)

Server controller probably wouldn't notice.  Don't worry about it.
I've not tried to fetch this reference card.  Was there anything in
particular you wanted to do?

Very good point.  I had to look up my bookmarks too.
The URL is <http://www.iversoft.com/piclist/>

 This does appear to be a pre-requisite to talk to the listserver.

 It«s a machine.  You ain«t *seen* thick skin until you talk to a
machine!  Like the one on which you are typing.

 There are two main things.  Commands go in the message body, not the
subject line, and *nothing else* goes in the message body.  No taglines
or signature.
