NOTE: (by Gilles)
I've decided to suspend any further updates to the CRINMAIL newsletter archive because of Internet gremlins. If you click on "Gilles' CRINMAIL Archive" below, you'll note that the latest issue of CRINMAIL is dated December 2016 because that's when I ceased updating the Archives pages for several online newsletters, some that went right back to Y2K. I've left those pages online but I won't be updating them.

Here (below) is the link to the latest issue of CRINMAIL:
