Hello Internautes,

I've started to make a lot of changes on to the system and how everything reintegrates with the BBS.

Since the BBS has moved back in house, this is becoming more of a centre piece of my digital legacy (as it were).

Since I lost the wcListServer software a few years back, hosting the mailing lists is a bit of a challenge. But also since the mail levels could easily become pretty high if a list becomes popular, then I could find myself having to make the move again.

This is why I decided to move the mailing lists off of DreamHost (mainly because they're refusing to upgrade Mailman) and on to Groups.io.

The good thing about this move is that everything will then be served off of my main list mmn@groups.io with sub groups to split off everything, thus making sure it's not too chaotic.

Some of the groups you'll be able to post from without having to subscribe on groups.io.

Any questions as always, let me know.
