Are We Not Men? (& Women?) [OT^2] (Was Re: PDP-8/Es available [NOT!])

Sam, some people have expressed an interest in this general discussion...
so far, you are the only one who has opposed it. I don't think it's
really that hard to hit the delete button (but now I sound like a
spammer). So... I would like to propose the following:

I have set up a listserv for computer collectors. Before you get uptight,
I don't want this new mailing list to compete with the classiccmp. In
fact, my rules will be this:

  1. Members should have an interest in collecting computers.
  2. Members should have some semblance of a life outside of computers.
  3. Discussion shall include, but not be limited to Linux, premarital
sex, drug/alcohol use, The Simpsons(tm), religion, business, pleasure, and
whatever your heart desires EXCEPT NO DISCUSSION OF COMPUTERS >10 YEARS
OLD. (That's what classiccmp is for.)

to subscribe send a message 'subscribe' to

There, if you want to discuss life outside of computers, there's a place
for you (me). And Sam can be happy knowing that classiccmp can stay on


p.s. This will (hopefully) be my last ever off-topic post on classiccmp.
