Copying AUUG-talk for the last time.  There are other lists copied;
please follow up there.

But it's there, and also a list for web administrators; copied.
Obviously we don't advertise them.

This is not exactly a cooperative approach.  I've already offered to
you to put you on the lists.  I doubt that there'll be much
opposition, but a little negotiation would go a long way.

Yes, probably, and it would certainly make the ports installation
several orders of magnitude easier.  The problem is that
www.auug.org.au isn't exactly a machine that would run Microsoft

  FreeBSD 4.7-STABLE #1: Sat Dec  7 07:53:33 CST 2002
      grog at wwy.auug.org.au:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC
  Timecounter "i8254"  frequency 1193182 Hz
  CPU: Pentium II/Pentium II Xeon/Celeron (466.72-MHz 686-class CPU)
    Origin = "GenuineIntel"  Id = 0x665  Stepping = 5
  real memory  = 125816832 (122868K bytes)
  avail memory = 117227520 (114480K bytes)

It might even have memory issues with the latest release of FreeBSD.
A donation of a better machine (preferably from somebody in Adelaide)
would help; otherwise, I'd suggest we discuss the upgrade on the
appropriate lists.

David, I'll check tomorrow (if I have time; it seems there's some
festivity coming up) and put you on the list.  Of course, you have
access to the box, so you could do it yourself.

See complete headers for address and phone numbers.
