First, I apologize to all those responded to my need for a new home for
NV-L for not getting back to you.  I foolishly sent the message and then
took the Christmas/New Year holiday.  And I got married.  Beyond that, I
downloaded your responses at home and when I thought that another
department on campus was interested in taking this list I deleted
emails.  So, I am back to square one.

The NV-L list is not trivial.  There are over 1000 subscribers with many
of those subscribers being "exploders" at other campuses and companies.
I have no idea how many final recipients there may be.  If you subscribe
to the list you know that there is a substantial amount of traffic.  It
is not a task to be taken lightly.

So, I come once again, hat in hand (and supplying a bit more
information) asking if someone can host a list of this magnitude?  I
have no experience in transferring a list and my only LISTSERV
experience is with L-Soft's LISTSERV which I have used since it Eric
used to give it away ... more years than many of you have been
programming! :-)  I guess this means it will not be a trivial "turn key"
transfer unless you have a fair amount of expertise.
