Hello NGWList!

As many of you know (although I never made a big announcement about it), 
I retired from GroupWise consulting on December 31, 2021.  So it's been 
more than a year. I no longer even have a Groupwise serer <gasp>.  
Although I sometimes miss being involved in the day to day aspects of 
GroupWise, I enjoy not being concerned about email servers at 3 am :-)

Even though I officially retired over a year ago, I had known this was 
coming for the past 7 years.  During that time I have tried various 
options to remove myself from being responsible for the NGWList, but all 
requests/offers to take over the management/ownership of the list have 
stalled.  I can no longer, in good faith, be the sole point of contact 
and responsible party for the list.

ngwlist.com is currently hosted on Linode.com.  It costs $20 a month for 
hosting and about $15 a year for domain registration.

At its height, there were about 2000 members of the list.  Currently we 
have 225 members, which is still not a bad number, but as we know from 
the traffic on the list, not all of those members are "active" or at 
least they don't actively ask questions.  I am sending this message to 
poll the community as to whether we should keep the list active, and if 
so, appeal to some other person or entity to take over the 
responsibility of the list.  So now is the time to decide 1) does this 
list continue to be of value to you, and if yes, 2) who is willing to 
take it on?

Today is 17 Feb (heck it's already 18 Feb here in Italy).  Let's try to 
find a solution, or a proposed solution by 1 March, 2023!
