No problem. 

BTW Lincoln, your email messages are being delivered in RFC822 attachments
making them difficult to view & reply to, at least with the mail readers I
use (Entourage, Apple Mail, pine, Outlook). I guess these readers aren't yet
clued into to this (probably superior) scheme. Could you send "non-attached"
versions of your messages in addition to the attached PGP-signed message?

Perhaps there's a configuration option I'm missing (though I did recently
figure out how to get pine from complaining about iso-8859-1 character

Mailman deals with your attachments no problem, so I've actually been using
that as my reader: http://portal.open-bio.org/pipermail/das2/


PS. Here's a curiosity: When I exported the Message/RFC822 container in your
email, I got these two lines:

What's 'the-concourse-on-high' about? Searching the web, it appears to have
a Baha'i association (without hyphens), or as a generic 'From' attribute in
emails (with hyphens).
