I'll repeat what I said last time...

I do NOT plan on moving stella.  Despite some recent problems,
biglist HAS been reliable in the past.

That said, I have also NOT been against the idea of a shadow list.
I could see the archives being duplicated for The Dig, and though
it would be a pain, how about sending posts to stellalist and
another list so both have it?

If anyone wants to put a list together -- Thomas has already
volunteered twice -- I'm not against it.  But I'd prefer to see
actiivity stay on biglist.


The Reply-To thing has already been fixed.

A question for you guys (email me directly, not the list) --
did any of you try to submit a post between 10/27 and 11/08?
I know of the following posts in this timeframe, so no need
to tell me about these:

It would help to know if these are the only ones missing, since
Biglist received them -- we need to see if the problem is just
that they're not being transferred properly, or if others are
being lost entirely too.  I hope to have the messages above sent
through, but it still may be a day or two before we see them.

Archives are still up in the air, but I've told my contact about
the dissatisfaction, and so he's hoping to get to it "soon".  I
don't know when though.

If you find a bug with the list, send it to beta@xxxxxxxxxxxx
Please do NOT abuse this address -- don't send gripes, but only
use it to report bugs, and supply as much information about the
bug as possible.  It would probably help to mention that it's
for "stella" too...

My contact also had this to say; just wanted you guys to hear it
in his words, not mine:
