Background, for any interested SF-LUG people, is here:

The Internet host in question has been haunted by bad administrative
decisions by volunteers who made them without consulting anyone else
(something nobody was supposed to do), leading to avoidable and
pointless security problems, and it is now time to clean up the
resulting mess.  Fortunately, SVLUG (which I'm not _supposed_ to
have to run, but other volunteers flaked out) isn't currently meeting,
and the group isn't needing or using its Web site at the moment, only
making (very infrequent) use of mailing lists on a different Internet
host.  So, there is no rush -- and we (which probably means just me) 
can take the time to do it intelligently, this time.
