just a little heads up.
roots is not only delivered in digest.
it comes in digest and as individual emails.
it is released in a bunch - usually - but not only in digest.
like at this moment it seems that the presecreener on duty is releasing
prescreened emails as able.
not at the regular 630 am 1230pm 630pm 1230am time slots..
