META: Moving to, list silence requested

The SL4 mailing list is moving to, which should hopefully fix
problems with emails bouncing as spam (due to a machine being
incorrectly listed as a spammer) and the continuing archive problems.

I'd like to ask that people maintain list silence until you hear the
all-clear. (To prevent lost posts, duplicate posts, etc. during the
migration process.) If you don't hear either an all-clear or an "oops,
never mind" within a day, then your email address was migrated but is, for
some reason, unreachable from If this happens to you, please
email me privately.

After the transition, posts to will be automatically
forwarded to (i.e., it will be the sole subscriber to, so if you post to accidentally,
don't worry; your post will show up.

If you have something to say during the transition, feel free to join the
IRC chat on #sl4 at (Note that this is the same machine as
before - you can still see #extropy and #immortal on the same server.)

Google hasn't yet indexed the new archives (which now extend back to the
dawn of SL4, including the YahooGroups days not formerly listed), but I
submitted the URL and this should be fixed shortly. There's a gap
of a few days carved out, but when the transition is finished I can
re-upload my own complete archive of SL4 and regenerate the hypermail

Some new pages: # new list home # list rules # chat page for #sl4,
                            # now with working chat applet # new search page # new archives page

Also, I've simplified the monthly chat algorithm. The chat is now always
on the first Wednesday of each month at 9PM Eastern Time, period. No more
alternation. Incidentally, there are now quite a few people routinely
hanging out in #sl4.

More to follow when the migration is complete.
