#1148 Itty Bitty Things
The un-subscribe command on Mountain Wings was not working for
the last five days (May 22-27, 2001). It's working now.
We received an e-mail from a lady who said she had tried to
un-subscribe, but she was still receiving issues. I didn't see
how that could be possible, so I un-subscribed her and then
checked the database. Her e-mail address was still there.
I finally tracked down what was wrong. An itty-bitty character
was missing from the un-subscribe script. I don't know how it
disappeared, it just disappeared.

of MountainWings during that period.

If that's you, e-mail us and let us know.
For those of you who did un-subscribe and are still getting
issues, it's working now. The itty-bitty thing has been fixed
and the un-subscribe is working perfectly. Maybe it was
working perfectly all along.
Perfection just may not be what we think.
Itty-Bitty things lead to Great Big things.
There is nothing insignificant.
