In Kendrick's defense, he has been looking for a better location,
but it is not easy.  Kendrick pays for his Netcom account out of his
own pocket, Atlantia isn't paying for it.  Two sites I looked at
for Kendrick didn't pass muster.  And until a better site is found,
it will probably stay where it is.

So here are some ideas what is needed...  any suggestions ?

a) A site with reliable connectivity to the Internet
b) A site with an automated list processing system
c1) A site that will donate access for the list OR
c2) Funding to just go buy the service from someone
d) A site that will be responsive to list problems

I'm sure there are other requirements.  I would suggest that if you
have an idea that fits these kind of qualifications, then contact
Kendrick directly.
