Thank you for repeating that, as it is what Pug had said as well.

I was, in fact, mentioning that I had not received the Rialto recently, 
more in
an attempt to trace the problem that at least Emer and I are having than
anything else. 

I believe that Emer was, in fact, however, referring to the SCA-L Digest,
rather than the Uselessnet version, since (as I recall from other 
with her on the topic) that is the form she receives the Rialto in.  
to further make the waters murky, I have received neither the Digest 
nor has my particular copy of the Newsgroup updated itself recently.  Ergo,
for me at least, the Rialto is "down".

BTW, as I'm sure you are well aware, since Rec.Org.Sca/SCA-L is neither 
fish nor fowl, I can see no reason for getting one's braies twisted over 
it is referred to as the Rialto, since, as such, it is neither limited to 
Digest nor Uselessnet version.
