I wonder how many on the SW list
I have a definite interest in the concept of SW as a
means of better annotating signs as I see them. But
far too much of what appears on this mailing list is
self-congratulatory or of so little, if any, relevance
to my level of interest that, and significantly, in
the absence of an "unsubscribe" option, I am hovering
my cursor over the "spam"/"notify spam" list. That
would be a shame for such a list as this. But, in the
absence (and repeating myself) of an "unsubscribe"
link, I do not feel there is is much option.
I do know that, in response to others who have
expressed a concern at being unable to know how to
unsubscribe, they have posted and asked how. But why
should they, and I, have to? Why can't the process be
simplified and, so far as other respected and valued
posting lists are concerned, why can't there be a
simple "unsubscribe linl?
With total respect for others who do, I really have
absolutely no interest in Spanish or French, or
various other language formats for SW. I certainly
have no interest in the coding for any of them. It's
the New Year - time for a clean sweep.
Please do something about this.

Dear SW List members -
For a holiday week, I sure have been working long
hours, and so have several of you as well - I know
this because of the amazing email I am receiving
from all over the world -
Steve has been burning the midnight oil, working
long hours too, on the editing of his remarkable
document, Encoding the Graphemes of the SWScript,
which will be posted on Saturday, January 1st,
2011. The improvements Steve has added, based on
your feedback, my feedback and other items, have
really enhanced the document...thanks to everyone
for your input.
Nancy Romero completed the complete 21 Chapters of
the Gospel According to John in ASL in SignPuddle
over a year ago, but it has taken a year to get
the full 21 chapters into a large PDF and printed
book...the page layout and book design was a huge
job because of the size of the book - it is 480
pages long. Finally we have the finished 480-page
PDF document, and we are ready to print the books.
I printed five copies on my home printing machines
this week and the hardest part was the binding - I
bound the five books myself with coil bind, but
the books are so thick it was hard for me to do
the coil bind myself, and so I am now going to
invest in getting around 10 copies printed
elsewhere...in January I will show you photos of
the thick books - the thickest ever in SignWriting
history that i know of, and it is all SignWriting
- no illustrations - just SignText...with an
English translation on the bottom of each page in
tiny print...based on the New Living Translation
New projects on SignWriting in Poland, Portugal,
Germany, the United States, the UK and well...the
list is quite long actually...I am trying to put
the reports into one large "SignWriting Year End
Report 2010"...so that is coming in January...
