Okay, so I f*cking HATE Yahoo! Groups (sorry Morse). Dave Riley cooked up this wacky scheme to use his server (moonfall.com) in Vancouver to host FOIB along with his huge collection of PowerPuff Girls P0RN and I agreed to go along for the ride.
We’re now using funky, buzzword-compliant OPEN SOURCE software to host FOIB on a real honest-to-god X server. And 3 cheers for Dave… NO MORE ADS!
That’s not all the happy news, sports fans!
Now you can modify your own settings on FOIB without having to go through some huge rigmarole with getting a Yahoo WalletÂ (or whatever) and a big online account.
The new homepage for FOIB is:
…this is where you can do your administrative stuff. You can now subscribe, unsubscribe, set yourself to DIGEST mode, suspend your account, etc. from a simple web page — it’s easy… Try it!
To post to the list you can email either:
foib [at] ianbell [dot] com …or foib [at] moonfall [dot] com
Also, to be backward compatible, I have forwarded messages from the old server at Yahoo in case you forget.
DISCLAIMER: Please forgive me if I screw up and there are some hiccups.
