Impt. Admin. mssg: PLEASE READ

Orion subscribers,

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: majordomo@panda.mscc.huji.ac.il

2) Eventually postings will have to be addressed to 
orion@panda.mscc.huji.ac.il but not yet. For the time being, send Orion 
list postings to orion@pluto.mscc.huji.ac.il and private Orion 
list-related business to me at msorion@pluto.mscc.huji.ac.il. 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 
msorion@pluto.mscc.huji.ac.il and I will post it if I do not see the 
original appear within a reasonable length of time.

Thank-you for your patience.
