Hi Carl,

As far as Reindl goes, he must be really empty inside to think that gate-keeping a mailing list makes him superior in any way whatsoever.

Anyways, I double-clicked the file in order to install it and it ran some process in Terminal. Is there anything else I need to do other than deleting the executable in order to completely uninstall the file?
