Archive outage

I'm afraid that an error with the server is
preventing archiving of the mailing list for the last couple days.
Trying to track down the details with the hosting provider (who, it
should be noted, provide the service gratis).

Whenever this gets fixed, it will not result in any permanent loss of
messages; but you won't be able to read the latest messages via the
archive until this is resolved.

Btw. No slight to the good folks at, but maybe this
is a nudge toward something I've advocated before: Moving the list
archive over to the domain. It's not an issue of server
resources here... just of making it easier to remember the URL for the
archive. If we did this, we'd want to maintain the old one for people
who link to it (including search engines); but we could start with
mirroring, then move to redirecting after a couple months.

The updating of the archives is just a matter of some scripts that run
on cron. I can provide and explain those to an
maintainer if there is shared desire to make this happen.

A nice word for MS: <IMG SRC="c:\con\con">
