I'm writing and/or updating 15 FM books. I have a web site where I post a
PDF of each book. On a rotating basis, I'll update and rePDF anywhere from 1
to 4 books every day or every couple of days.

The problems is that telling a distribution of 20 or so people and/or
Exchange distribution lists means that almost everyday, a whole bunch of
people are hearing that such and such documents have been updated...and
after awhile, the notices just become noise.

Therefore, I've taken the following approach...if it is just an update or a
minor revision, I just replace the old version of the PDF with the new
version and I only send out a notice when something major is done to a book,
such as a new section.
