Subject: Delays

If some of you have been wondering about the slowness of list mail in

recent months (and getting worse), it's because of a net crisis. I

won't bore you with the details -- it has to do with things like the

impending death of bitnet, the slow VM interbit mechanism (for sending

listserv mail to internet addresses), and the dumping of even more interbit

transfer duties onto the already severely overloaded UGA mainframe. All

kinds of pessimistic predictions have been flying aroung the net, some

convinced that UGA's mainframe is going to choke to death any day now.

Just thought I should let you know that it's not your imagination or your

own system. Nor is ADS-L the only list suffering from the enormous delays.
