Waye Mason, <DSUCHAIR\!/ac.dal.ca> who shops at IGA with his Mom with
minimal embarrassment :), suggested:
}I'm wondering if folks are interested/aware/intrigued by the idea of
}moving Sloan net over to the Chubucto Freenet? The mailing list
}software allows for real listserv,
I think that messrs. Schuman and Covey desired this from day one, but
didn't find access to a listserv.
}This means you could reply to mail when you read it, instead of re-
}entering the sloan net address.
Some of us with real editors don't have to worry about that :) Even on
the Dal VAX, you can set up a PMDF alias and just type To: in%sloan rather
than have to type the whole address in quotes and not mispell :) it. Ask
me or the help desk for instructions.
}It also means that it could be set up as a bulliten board at the
}freenet, so locals could read it like a newsgroup,
}and interact through the public terminals in the Libraries.
That could be cool.
}Also, the net would be automated, so the subscribe and unsubscribe would
}be based around the message subject, instead of Scott having to do it manuall
This is almost a necessity, as Scott has become such a lurker that
some people actually believe that James runs this list :)
}Even more controversially, how about changing the name to AC-scene or
}something more representative of Nfld, Moncton etc...
If we can come up with a name easily recognizable to outsiders. AC-scene
made me think of Alice Cooper before Atlantic Canada. I think Sloan is in
fact a good name in terms of meaning something to someone who knows about
}just that we haven't really talked much about Sloan recently, even with
}the new album,
Yeah, why is that? I'm sure that more than a few of us have heard the
album (though I haven't). Opinions, disappointments, satisfaction? Hasn't
there been any good press to repost?
When will Chris get online and post his review? :)
