I should have mentioned that the server for GPZLIST.COM is run by list 
member Rickard Olsson on a server in Europe.  He was nice enough to give us 
all the space we needed and gave me the ability to FTP additions.  I didn't 
ask for the ability to do PHP or other server-side stuff as I don't have 
much experience with that stuff.  I write code for a living, I don't 
administer web servers.

Since that time, Richie has set up forums and blogs on his server.  Check it 
out at

I'm all for incorporating our static HTML into a WiKi or some other more 
interactive environment but at the same time, there will always be those 
that stick with the E-mail distribution list so we have resisted switching 
over to a true forum for the list itself.  This comes up every so often, and 
perhaps its time to discuss it again as list traffic seems to have fallen 
off the cliff as of late.

Hey Dave, if it were to get taken over, would you be opposed to someone
adding a proper PHPBB forum to the site?  Mailing lists are old school ;)
haha.  I am a systems administrator, and could set the site up on it's own
server out of my colocation facility.  As a co-founder and admin of, I can vouch for how much easier it is to manage a proper
forum, and how much more community you can get involved.
