Thought this was interesting, sorry for those who got it already on
SlugLUG. For the record, this is the type of thing that I think the
list-admins might want to forward, hope it is not intrusive to you all
on this low traffic list.

Subject: Free System Administrator Newsletter from USENIX/SAGE
I'm drumming up support for SAGE's new sysadmin newsletter. If it
looks interesting for your user group, I hope you will share the info
below with your members so they can get a free subscription.
My goal? To create a large force of system administrators who will
ultimately assist SAGE in its purpose in life: To forward the state
of professionalism for sysadmins of all types.
As in all things USENIX/SAGE, we never share e-mail addresses outside
SAGE, the USENIX special technical group for system administrators,
has a free weekly email-based newsletter for sysadmins. Twenty
editors cull web and paper news items down to the dozen or so of the
most relevant and interesting items every week.
This breezy e-mail newsletter is easy to read and contains not just
article summaries but also pithy commentary by some of the editors.
See a free sample by sending a blank email to the auto-responder at
address will be saved only long enough to verify that the reply was
sent to you and then will be erased.)
Subscribe via firstname.lastname@example.org by including 'subscribe sage-news'
in the body of an e-mail. Unsubscribe just as easily. Your e-mail
address will be used only by SAGE for sending newsletters and the rare
notification about these sorts of services.
ps: SAGE's new slashdot-like discussion-group-for-sysadmins at the
SAGE website: http://sagewire.sage.org might also be of interest.
The signal-to-noise ratio is outstanding; the participants have
generally been extremely knowledgeable.
