Hello everyone.

Some of you may not know who I am, I am the person behind the
technical system administration of the rp-ml mailing list and the
server running it. I have been managing the list server practically
ever since it first saw the light of day.

I've been able to manage the server because I have been employed
part-time by the Lahti University of Applied Sciences (formerly Lahti
Polytechnic). The University has kindly provided electricity and the
necessary network connections to run the service, free of charge.

Now that is about to change, because I have been made redundant and I
doubt the University is willing to provide the service once I am

Now it is time for you as a community to decide what shall we do with
the mailing list in the future. I'm willing to continue administering
the list if a suitable place for the server is found somewhere. And it
does not have to be a physical server, there are cheap virtual servers
commercially available and running the list does not require that much
computing power.
