R o s h a n ' s H u m o u r L i s t _,.-*~'^'~*-.,__,.-*~'^'~*-.,_ Hello Everyone! Well, our little Humour List has been growing, and growing, and growing, and isn't little anymore! It passed the 5000 mark a few days ago. It's mostly due to the help of Steve Willoughby of the Oracle Service Humour Archives, Rustin Kreider of E-Funnies, and Shawn Thayer of "Best of: Humour", all of them people who run their own humour lists. Because of so many new people being on the list, I think I better mention a few things... * When forwarding mail from my list, please leave the signature on. If you do take it off, please mention that it was from my list. Please DON'T take off the 'Contributed by: xxxx xxxx' portion. * Do send me any articles which you think are funny. If I think it's suitable material, then you'll see it on the list. But PLEASE make sure that there are no copyright infringements. * When you forward my mail to someone else, please use the "Forward" option on your mailer. If you "Re-direct"/"Re-send"/"Bounce" the mail, any error messages will be sent to me. :( I'm having quite enough error messages as it stands, so please don't be the reason for more. * Lately I've been receiving quite a lot of e-mail containing chain- letters, asking me to forward it to the rest of the list. They all claim that bad luck will come if you don't comply, but I've been receiving these for the past year, none of which I sent out again, but I haven't noticed an increase in bad luck! :) I shall continue this practice of NOT forwarding any chain mail, so don't bother sending it to me. * None of the humour is intended to offend anyone. It's all meant in jest. Finally, I'll answer a question which quite a lot of people have been asking. Yes, I AM from Sri Lanka. I'm a 19 year student, just started on the second year of a B.Sc. Degree in Information Systems. The Humour List is done in my spare time. I don't get anything from it, except the knowledge that I'm making people laugh. (I hope! :) I hope to continue as I have, with the general content of the jokes being the same. If you have any ideas/suggestions/comments to make, then send me mail and let me know. Well, till tomorrow, Roshan N.
