Yes, it is overwhelming, but it's also essential to enabling Prof
Paxson and us the TA's to respond to your problems in a timely and
efficient manner.  However, you can also sign up for the mailing list
in "digest" form so that you will only receive one email containing
all the day's conversations, thus letting you quickly skim through and
find the things that are important to you.

I might be able to set up an RSS feed of critical information if there
are a good number of you who would actually use the service.  To
everyone:  Send me a private email if you *would* use an RSS feed of
class info and I'll let that determine whether or not I should go
through the effort.
