Date: Thu, 23 Feb 1995 17:38:45 -0600 From: Natalie Maynor 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. --Natalie (maynor[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
