Impt. Admin. mssg: PLEASE READ
I have some good news. After months of server problems, majordomo
malfunctions, disappearing mssgs, ghost mssgs, etc., the Orion list will
be moving to a different computer, PANDA. This computer is newer, faster
and will be using a more up-to-date version of majordomo software, which
will include the digest option (the day's mssgs in one long mssg instead
of several individual postings). Since we are the first list to be moving
over to the new system, there may be some bugs but we hope that it will
not be any worse than the problems we've been experiencing lately.
The transition will take about a month and PLUTO and OLIVE mail will be
re-routed through PANDA although these addresses will not change for a
while. What this means for the Orion List is the following:
1) Starting March 17, 1997, all server commands (subscribe, unsubscribe,
help, etc.) should be addressed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
2) Eventually postings will have to be addressed to
email@example.com but not yet. For the time being, send Orion
list postings to firstname.lastname@example.org and private Orion
list-related business to me at email@example.com. I will post
another announcement when you need to update your address books and
to change the orion address.
A final note: the sys ops tell me that during the month or so while pluto
and olive mail is being rerouted through panda, mail will be delayed by
about an hour as they will only be transferring it hourly. So the speed
with which your post appears on Orion may be affected. If your mail has
been disappearing altogether, I suggest that you send a CC to me at
firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post it if I do not see the
original appear within a reasonable length of time.
Thank-you for your patience.
