I'm pleased to report that the 100th different email address has just
subscribed to the list.

Since I started the list in mid-August, there have been some very
interesting posts on a variety of topics.  I'm especially pleased that
the list has been used in a collaborative way, with people sharing
knowledge to tackle and solve problems.  The development of the first
extents of spliced treble-dodging major and the first composition for a
720 of MUG minor are two examples.

I am also aware that there a number of ringing areas which have not
really been discussed though.  Whilst quite a lot of attention has been
given to extents of minor, there has been little mention of triples.  I
know that several members of the lists have done work recently, whether
on multi-part peals of Stedman triples, bobs-only compositions of Erin
triples (is this the greatest challenge left in ringing theory?!) or
more exotic methods, and it would be good to see some of these make the

I also think that people describing ideas they've tried that were
unsuccessful could be useful, and some description of computational
techniques that have been applied to ringing would make interesting

Keep up the good work people!
