Under Windows NT I get:
4294967296
0

Exactly what you expected.

BTW, is there a way to configure this group to receive individual messages?
Currently, I only have the options of Web only/Daily group.
Perhaps there is something to change in administrator mode...
My other eGroups/YahooGroups does allow me to get individual messages, so I
doubt it is a problem with my account.
Note that briefly before becoming YahooGroups, I had this option available.
Then, I didn't received any message from the group, and I had to set back to
daily mode.
Currently, it is a bit hard to answer to a message: I have to edit the whole
daily message to get only the relevant one.

Regards.

It seems that you're reading lua-l from eGroups.

I'm sorry, but we do not control lua-l at eGroups.

You can always subscribe lua-l directty by sending mail to
