Dear Everyone,

Please, if you want to unsubscribe from the list, follow the steps given
below to send a message to rhl-request@dilithium.mit.edu.  Do NOT send them
to me.  I don't have time right now to go through them and unsubscribe
anyone.  The automated method would be much faster.  Only contact me if you
have a problem unsubscribing.  Some people have sent me requests to
unsubscribe, and got mad that they still haven't been.  I'm upto my ears in
assignments these days, and don't have all the time that I require. :( Even
WITH all those assignments, I'm still trying my best to send a message per
day.  Hope everyone understands.
