The Core-talk archives are searchable. The archive search index is updated overnight, so today's messages won't appear in any search results. Give a space- or comma-separated list of words to search for. Only whole words will be matched. Check the box to return a list of messages containing any of the search words, othewise only messages containing all the words will be returned.

Subscribing to Core-talk

There are two ways to read Core-talk:

RSS Subscription

You can be notified about the arrival of new messages at the list archive without having to subscribe, using one of our two RSS feeds.

Visiting those links in a regular web browser won't show anything particularly useful; if you aren't familiar with RSS read this. I use and recommend Feedly for reading RSS feeds (it also has apps for both Android and iOS), but there are other readers available, built into web browsers, as stand-alone programs or apps, or purely online.

Note that the full text feed is new and may break in some circumstances, but it seems to work pretty well.

All EPICS mailing lists are moderated for messages sent by non-members, so if you haven't subscribed using the Mailman interface your messages will be held for approval before being circulated. If you prefer to use the RSS interface to read messages but want to avoid the moderation delay, you can subscribe to the emails but configure Mailman to not actually send you any messages.

Email Subscription

To have Core-talk messages forwarded to you by email, visit the mailman information page for the Core-talk list and fill in the subscription form there. You can also subscribe via email; send a message to [email protected] that contains just the work "help" in either the subject or message body for further instructions.

To send a message to a list

In general you should subscribe if you intend to send messages to this list (note that you can subscribe but turn message delivery off if you normally read Core-talk through the RSS feed). If you aren't subscribed, your message will have to be approved by a list moderator, which will delay its delivery. However it should eventually get through (unless it looks like spam), so a subscription is not essential.

Address messages to [email protected], for example:

Please use a relevent subject line
[email protected]
[email protected]
Your message...

Some broken mail programs may try to send messages to the bounce-address [email protected] which is the envelope return address used for all outgoing messages and is only supposed to receive information about messages that can't be delivered. If you do not correct this address before sending, your messages will be delayed as they will have to be forwared by the list owner.
