i didn't mean in a single day, i meant in general - some digests work so
that every time 10 messages are recieved, a digest goes out, regardless of
day or time.  if not enough messages are recieved in one day, no digest
gets sent. this list definitely has enough traffic for that kind of
non-daily digest, and i think that the frequency would end up being about
the same as if it was a daily digest.

i don't know how much traffic this list has had before last week, when i
joined, but i got 13 messages today. i want to stay on the list, but i
don't know if i want to wade through that many individual messages.
