=== PathWiz freeware v5 ==========================

PathWiz! is a handy utility that is designed to address the needs of users whose external exhibits are stored in different drives/folders, including those who move their TMG projects between computers with different folder structures. PathWiz! works with TMG v5 and v6.

Now the author, Bryan Wetton, has released PathWiz! Version 5, the International FreeWare Version. This new version uses an English, German, Dutch, or Norwegian interface and sports a number of new features to help you sort, filter, annotate, catalog, and make global changes to your multimedia exhibits.

=== TMG-L Index Version ==========================

TMG-L is the most popular mailing\discussion list about The Master Genealogist. TMG-L is so popular, in fact, that the volume of message traffic can sometimes be overwhelming. Now there's a simple way to take advantage of that discussion list without swimming in messages.

Following is an announcement from Lee Hoffman, the administrator of the TMG-L list:

This is to announce the availability of a new
Index version of the TMG Mailing List. In addition
to the regular version (TMG-L) and the Digest
version (TMG-D), the Index version (TMG-I) is
also available.

Similar in a minor way to the first part (the
contents table) of a list Digest, the Index
version is basically only the table of contents
of the messages that have been posted to the
TMG list for that day. This will include the
message number, the subject of the message, the
number of lines (size) and the sender. The index
massage thus is a relatively short index or
table of contents of the messages posted to the
list during the previous 24-hour period. As you
review the Index, if you are interested in
seeing a particular message, you may then send
a message to RootsWeb asking for it. A brief
explanation about how to do this is included.
This Index message will usually be transmitted
around midnight.

To subscribe to the Index version, send a
message to: <TMG-I-request@rootsweb.com>

with only the word "subscribe" (no quotes) in
the body of the message. Do not include
anything else in the body of the message
(not even a signature).

You may unsubscribe in a similar manner.

You should post to the list by sending a
message to the following address: <TMG-L@rootsweb.com>

As always, you may browse or search the list
archives via the list page at:


The new Index version may be just the thing for
those who feel that they are getting too many
messages from TMG-L. This way, a subscriber will
get just the single message. They can then decide
if they will review the message(s) by browsing
the Archives or request certain messages to be
sent to them.

Hope this helps -
TMG-L Administrator
