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!
