Here is a repost of the earlier post listing all of the info concerning the new list.
It was decided to leave this list alone and those who wish to contribute could do so.
I've chosen to stay on both lists, unless this one truly becomes inactive and then I will leave.
We seem to have enough people for the time being to keep it interesting.
See message below.

Hi all,

My name is Chetan Bakhru, and I am the person hosting this mailing list
for the BCT community.  I am twenty years old, and I live in Orange
County in southern California.  I attend California State University,
Fullerton as a computer science major, and I am currently a junior.  Some
of my interests include listening to music, talking on the phone,
anything to do with computers and technology, making new friends,
traveling, reading, writing, and swimming.  I wanted to welcome you all
to the new list and give you a few pieces of information that you might
find useful.  If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to
contact me at either DrunkenMonkey@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx or
postmaster@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (the postmaster address simply forwards any
mail you send there to my DrunkenMonkey account).  I also have a Gmail
address, bubblywubblyhindu@xxxxxxxxx, but since I'm running this list on
my server, I thought I'd make it easier for myself to moderate the list
by using my own mail system.  For those of you who haven't noticed, when
you send mail to the list address (blindcooltech@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx), you
will see a set of left and right braces in the subject line after the
message subject with a number inside of it.  I've got the list setup to
show the thread numbers for a particular topic so that people can tell
which message goes first, second, third, and so on for a particular
subject... just helps keep things organized.  I would like your feedback
on this; if you don't like it, let me know and I'll disable this so that
thread numbers are not shown.  For those of you who want digest mode,
send a message to mdaemon@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx with the words "digest
blindcooltech" without the quotes in the message body.  If you want
the "no mail" mode, send a message to the same address, but put the
words "nomail blindcooltech" in the body of your message.  In the "no
mail" mode, you will not receive any list mail while still being
subscribed to the list (useful for situations where you'll be away for a
while and don't want to receive list traffic).  To turn your list mail
back on, use the words "mail blindcooltech" in the message body, and if
you're switching from digest mode to normal mode, use "normal
blindcooltech".  Lastly, if you wish to unsubscribe from the list, send a
blank e-mail to blindcooltech-unsubscribe@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx  You will
then receive a confirmation e-mail which you will need to reply to in
order to complete the unsubscribe process.

Again, if you have any questions, I'll be more than happy to help.


Chetan Bakhru
