Right now I waiting to get a consensus from the group here. We should
discuss it on Saturday. The tux.org box is way old - a 2.4 kernel and
PHP3 - not php4. A new server is on the docket and has been donated and
it will of course be a little more "modern" ;) The issue is, that with
php3 and NO mysql, we're sorta limited in the ability to run sites like
that on fred-lug.org.
We can either do an easy redirect from http://tux.org/fredlug (the
current site) for now?? The content on that site is very much out-of-date.
I would like to, for now, create a redirect now and let's discuss
options on Saturday?

I agree. While "google rules" I don't think I like the idea of ANY
company owning the content of our mailing-list.
