     Ha! You were right: there is more about this on
the sf-lug mailing list "real soon now".

     (the following in the interest of clarity for
those not much familiar with these details.)
     The sf-lug mailing list is still up because it's
hosted on the LinuxMafia.com host.
The  sf-lug.{org,com}  web site is down because the
techies at (former) GoGrid finally got the word to
bring it off line. I guess I should waddle down
there and get the box.
     I'll also have to copy the web site files to
some other host and repoint the DNS data.
