Last week one of our members, Bruce Cartwright, contacted me about helping
out with the mail server. Since he has a system on the Internet, he ask if
I wanted to move the list over to his system rather then buy a new mail
server for my system. Since I already purchased the server, I ask if he
would be willing to run a backup for this list in case my system goes down
for a long period of time do to an earthquake, long term DSL outage or
other disaster. He agreed, so we now have a backup for this list.  His
server is located in Seattle WA so a large event around here won't
hopefully effect his system.

This weekend Bruce and I set up a process so that the membership file for
this  list is automatically transferred to his system once a day. If my
system goes down we can move over to his system until my system comes back

The address for the backup list is PSN-L@............ It should only be
used if my system goes down for a day or more. If you send out a message to
the PSN-L and don't get back an acknowledgment please don't immediately
start using the backup list. First check to see if my system is working. If
its down for more then a day then you can move over to the backup list.

One way of checking to see if my system is alive is to access my web server
at The mail and web servers are on the same system so
if you can't access my system with a web browser my system is offline.

Thanks Bruce for allowing us to use your mail server!

I recently received a few more donations for the new mail server. I would
like to thank:

Bob Barns
Nick Caporossi
Robert Fryer
Charles Patton 
Dick Webb

Thanks everyone!
