I had heard rumor your were enjoying retirement in Italy.  I hope its all you have worked hard for in your career.

Thanks for your work with GroupWise and the community. It was invaluable and very much appreciated.

Take Care.

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!
