I normally don't post much here; I read everything, but I don't do much 
with my collection anymore.  Bill advertised his proposed new mailing list 
on alt.folklore.computers (and, I'm sure, other places; that was where I 
read it) and you had to write a paragraph or two on why you wanted to 
join.  I don't have the message Bill wrote back to me anymore, but I 
remember him telling me I was number 6 to reply.  My message to him, which 
I did save, is dated the evening of March 12, 1997, and I seem to recall 
the list started a couple of days later.

The list's 20th anniversary is coming up very soon!
