I've been in this thing since round 10, I think. It has been what keeps the darkroom habit going for me at times - a forced deadline to get something out , even when the rest of my life is busy.
I would hate to see it fold. I am not a computer guru. That is why I love the darkroom; a reason to not look at the thing.
I understand that Ruediger has developed a tool to aid in automating the distribution lists.
If he is willing to pass on his tool, could explain what skills are needed to run that tool, and the platform it runs on, that might allow others to consider the task with less trepidation.
