William Annis is the coordinator for all the Textkit groups.
He is the one who receives the subscription requests when you use the page Perispomemon provided.

FYI 'Groet' is the Dutch word for 'Greetings'. My name is the one below the greeting.

Greeting!
Thanks for Your instructions!
I sent the letter to the address Bert has given. Then I signed up for the mailinglist at the link perispomenon has provided. Is everything I did correct?

I have also done what Alex says. I don´t know when we´ll start.

Paul and William will have to approve the applications first. I do not know how long this will take, but it could be a few days.

Patience :-)

Erm, well, yes, it is. It is Sus Antigoon, of 'Suske & Wiske' fame, if it means anything to anyone. Well, it's a ghost actually, not a real man.

I will not change it though 8)

But Gonzalo, what is your connection to Ganivet?

I knew it was from suske and wiske but I didn't know the 'ghost' was male. (You sure cannot tell male from female using the nose. They all have the same nose. :) )

Ah yes, Sidonia has exactly the same nose, true.

Ok, I have recieved my confirmation. It´s fantastic. I am reading the messages and putting myself in order to start.

Annis, if you read this, excuse me because I have re-sent my solicitude to enter in the group.

I have a problem reading some messages. Where I must see Greek characters -in some threads- I only see "???????". I thought it would be because I hadn´t configurated as well as it has to be my Greek fonts. I am checking it and I can see that they are OK.
I use Mozilla Firefox, might anyone help me?
I am also having some troubles since I am here seeing the interface of the forum. For instance, in the beggining of the principal page I see an strange sign (like a sort of an interrogative mark into a rhombus) the word "Forum". Is it what I must see?

Thanks in advance and excuse my English -I am improving it as well as I can.

I've also received the message saying that I am a member of the Textkit mailing list. It is great indeed! :-) But I do not know what to do now. Shall I receive messages with the lessons or I must to find them myself? What messages has Gonzalo talked about? Thanks.

PostPosted: Tue May 22, 2007 4:55 pm

At this very moment I am reading the last messages. I think you can do it by virtue of going to the message which you received and there is a direction. I neither know what to do now.

Where are you looking? When you visit the main mailing list page at the bottom you can enter your email address and the password you set when joining. After you have logged in the archive link should be available to you.

The latest mailing list is "April 2007". Is it all right? What about the current one (May)?

PostPosted: Tue May 22, 2007 9:05 pm
by perispomenon
There have been no emails to the mailing list in May. You subscribing means I can discuss schedules with you both outside of this thread, by sending emails to the list. The archive may be interesting for you, but not strictly necessary.

Now we have to wait for your GTSS accounts, so you can start posting lessons. I will see if I can get into touch with Paul and check the status of your accounts.

As I said, we must now wait until you also have the GTSS accounts. Did you also email Paul as outlined in Berts post earlier?

The mailing list will be of use as soon as you have access to GTSS, to discuss schedules, share howto's etcetera. For now, nothing will be happening there.

Hello, perispomenon! :-)
Could You tell me what is GTSS account and what I need it for?

PostPosted: Mon May 28, 2007 11:15 am
by perispomenon
You need GTSS to actually post your homework, so that I can correct it. It is a website created by forum member Paul.

Some more info can be found right here.

I've just pressed the subscribe button for the pharr-d, it's 1st June here now.

I really wish Kronos will grant me his precious moment for me to indulge with Homer...

Last but not least, hello, mate! Please accept this little chap from the south east Asia.

You would be number 4 of the 5 I have set as a limit. So it would be ok.

We are waiting for Paul to create the necessary GTSS accounts. Did you also send him an email with your desired accountname (see above)?

I have sent the mail but I didn't mention any "desired accountname" in the mail, should I resend?
I am using dial-up now, very very slow zzzzz.
However I can assess broadband in my office, but working hour is not easy to manage...

Only if you desperately want a very specific accountname :-)

No, you don't have to resend.

Hi All,

Sorry for my recent absence.

I have added three new users to the pharr-d GTSS group. I now need to send them their login userids and passwords.

Adelheid, can you ask the 3 new members to private message their e-mail addresses to me via Textkit?

Thank you.

Cordially,

Paul

P.S. - see http://www.greekgeek.org/gtss.pdf and http://www.greekgeek.org/gtssIntro.pdf
