Paul gave me admin access and I took Rick and the
"president at svlug.org" address off the list.  (I also
took away everyone else's admin access so at this
point I am sole admin.)

I have also pulled the group from the Google groups
directory, to avoid confusing new users, and turned
off non-manager posting.

Now I have to get Google's dorky little wysiwyg html
editing doo-dad to behave for long enough to replace
the group description with links to the real SVLUG
home page.

Should we send out an invitation to the group,
asking members to subscribe to the real "svlug" or
"svlug-announce" lists?
