it is 100% ridiculous of whomever proposed to terminate
svlug.org ... probably because they do not know how
to maintain a mailing list ??

svlug.org is supposed to be the "better" and probably the
more technically inclinded group ...

why do we need to depend on "google" ?? or even yahoo groups

there is zero benefits .. other than becoming a like
a "plain ole user" depending on the big fish 
like a helpless "microsoft user"

i will fix all the things "you folks" cannot or do not want to do
but everything i will be doing will be in the open and subject
to some discussion beforehand

=== all this private reply stuff has to stop ...
=== slvug is a community effort ...
