RE: Privacy, Peace and Permaculture Promotion

It getting late in the morning - 
that's a joke
I will really need to study this server stuff when Its not
so hot in the office-
the office is pretty solar senstive - only Australia doesn't 
run on a strict 4 seasons timetable this is the month 
when the european species start getting warmed up
and concentrate on flowers not shading the office.
It is also the month of winds and mood swings in the population
I think- no not me, never
I am off to Perth - driving - it is 4000 ks - quite a haul.
but I need to get away, I need quiet. 
I need the expansive desolate desert
Sounds like you've got a good plan - hope it doesn't
cost anymore as we pay by the minute to access the mailing list
and only sometimes surf the net.
I don't know if I handled the abuse well - maybe next time
I should ask the mailing list what they want in a discussion
and maybe I should only offer a summary of the letters that I recieved 
but I thought that to have an ongoing input the concepts should be 
thrashed out over time.  
I can handle bottom-feeders - we need a respect for diversity
and we would be nothing without those micro-organisms, don't
you reckon?

Years ago I had this mailing list, permaculture-mg, started by
the good folks at North Carolina Cooperative Extension at NCSU;
It was my intenion and hope that permies around the globe would use it
any way they saw fit and felt comfortable with. I see that you have.
Carry On!
Those who have a problem with that can unsubscribe or start their own 
list or newsgroup.

BTW, I plan to start a permaculture newsgroup soon. It won't be in the 
Usenet mainstream or an alt. group; it will be offered by a 
standalone, publically-accessable nntp news server, offering only a few 
newsgroups, to be set up here at sunSITE in the near future. 
You will be able to access it from my permaculture homepage (the URL for
that newsgroup will force your news reader to access our server) or simply
point your news reader software to our server & pick it up there.
I'm open to suggestions for other pc-related newsgroups I can form here.
Having our own server for a pc newsgroup makes it difficult for spammers 
and other bottom-feeding organisms to find it.
