Yes, Maurice, there has been a problem. Jonathan has sent a message to David Marotta, the list-owner and we hope to get things restored one way or another. My guess is that the storage disk or whatever used by to service B-Greek and perhaps some other lists also has crashed. Perhaps it can be restored; if not, perhaps we can restore the list on a new basis, hopefully at, assuming that David wants to keep it going there, otherwise we'll start it up anew elsewhere; I have a pretty recent WHO list for both b-greek and b-greek-digest. This evidently happened Friday night (US Eastern Standard Time); I sent a message that was bounced back from with a note such as you got "no such list 'B-GREEK'.

Sooner or later we'll get it sorted out, but I have no idea how long it may take. Hang in there!
