the response chain, and then skips to the next note with new
In 1978, John Matheny implemented the Notes Sequencer, a great
boon to habitual notes readers. The Sequencer lets you create a
personal list of the notesfiles you read regularly, and

your list for new postings with a minimum of key presses.
