Is that a genuine offer? I'd be happy to install some mailing-list
manager --- Mailman would be my preference --- and I'm sure I could
make it work. In college, I regularly ported code between IRIX,
Ultrix, and AIX; NeXTStep can't be much harder.

I'd be happy to host FoRK as an ezmlm list; I don't trust majordomo
enough to run it on my personal machine.

Before accepting this offer, though, remember that my machine had about
90% uptime through 1999, with one period (when I needed to buy new
hardware but was too broke) when it was essentially down for almost a
month; and I've experienced at least three unexplained outages since
then. (Two of them were before my motherboard died, though.)

The biggest problems so far have been flaky bargain-basement hardware
and a flaky bargain-basement modem connection.

If hosting it on your own machine is too much hassle, and running it on
my machine is too unreliable, I'd be happy to buy a
non-bargain-basement machine to plug in at UCI, which I could
administer from afar.

The Internet stock bubble didn't burst on 1999-11-08.  Hurrah!
The power didn't go out on 2000-01-01 either.  :)
