Re: Our pal, Netcom

As Staff Advisor of the SCA at UNC-CH, I have offered Tanner the 
possibility of relocating the list to UNC-CH's CREN Listprocessor.  I 
already administer two lists there, one of them being a daily digest for 
the world's planetarians.  Because of the already extant tie-in with the 
SCA at UNC-CH, running the list on our site would be free.  An 
unmoderated list would not require much in the way of intervention, and 
the CREN processor is very speedy.  One day delays tops, unless the 
machine goes crashing, which is a very rare event.

If the Kingdom (or even Windmasters Hill) is looking for a WWW site, 
capable of integrating the rec.org.sca and other USENET newsgroups, I 
would recommend that you check out the WWW site establishment policies on 
RTPnet (the local free-net style WWW server) at 
http://rtpnet.intercenter.net/ and see what you think.  Meanwhile, just 
moving the list should speed things up over NETCOM, if that is the 
immediate goal...  Just some food for thought.  Enjoy the snow!
