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 and I have bounced mail back and forth about this many times,
