Hi all   As indicating by Matt yesterday, he and I have been discussing plans to shut down the mailing list.  It’s been a good run – almost 20 years – but the level of participation has dropped and it has been difficult finding a sustained advertising revenue stream to cover the hosting costs.  In addition, a number of the working parts are now well past their ‘sell by’ date. 

  If you are interested in seeing the mailing list continue and would like to consider taking over the site, please contact me (tony@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx) off-list.   If we don’t find someone suitable to take up new ownership of the site then we will be looking to shut down both the mailing list and the web site at the end of March.   Thank you all for your participation and interest over the years.  The level of selfless contribution has been immense and the value of the knowledge shared here since 2001 incalculable.   Tony
