      ********* Linux Activists Mailing List Announcement *********

	Hello, my name is David S. Miller, and I like very many other
Linux users got very upset when I saw that was acting
funny and that no one was receiving from the lists. I had noticed it
later than some because me and others on the GCC channel have been
communicating with a huge CC: list ever since the lag from the list
became unbearable.

	Finally I decided to see if I could do something about it. I
have decided that I am going to run the linux-activists list myself. I
have a machine set up with Majordomo and Sendmail running with a
decent connection to the net. Hopefully this transition can be as
smooth as possible.

	If anyone knows a site in Europe with which I can set up some
kind of mail-exploding mechanism please let me know and give me some
pointers as I'd appreciate it.

	Right now, the lists are basically ready to go. Here is the list:

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference,
