Correct, I hit the wrong button, sorry about that :) Thanks for the 
links, I have one more question. I have been trying to have "pkg 
updating" sent along with my email so I can properly update things when 
it comes time, but I'm having difficulty with grep.  If I do a "pkg 
updating | grep 2014" , I only get the date and a link.  If I do a "grep 
-A 20 2014" it obviously includes 20 lines, but that may or may not work 
for every update entry. I'm not very experienced with grep, so how would 
I have it match only 2014 entries, or even just have pkg only show 
recent entries and skip the older ones entirely. It seems 
counter-intuitive to include every update entry a pkg may have ever had.
