I have been working every free minute since last Monday to install and configure this computer and I am making slow but steady progress. Marxism-thaxis and marxism-theory already decided to come, and I will also take marxism-news and marxism-intro (but marxism-intro will take a little because I have to the pseudonym mailing list software over from spoon). Marxism-general is welcome to come along too, but if the members of M-G find a better solution for their list then I will respect this and not try to duplicate marxism-general on the Utah marxism list cluster. There will also be a list called marx-administration in which the moderators of these lists and perhaps other list members decide the groundrules for this cluster of lists. There will be no charge for using this server, but the lists which come along must find one or more volunteers who spends a few hours a month telnetting into this server and helping with the technical maintenance of all lists. This is the same setup the spoon collective has for their lists. We will cooperate with the spoon collective regarding the technicalities of list management. Once I have everything set up on my computer, this setup can be duplicated easily on other debian-linux workstations. I chose debian linux among other brands of linux because they are the most politically correct and they have an excellent system how to download and maintain software. I hope that in the future we will not have one server but a number of servers distributed over the whole world. Those who help with the technical maintenance will learn many of the things necessary to support their own servers. If you want to read up on this look at http://www.linux.org http://www.debian.org and join your local linux users group. Hans Ehrbar.
