Back in August of this year, our Internet connections got rearranged - an
event that we still fondly refer to as The Great Disruption.  One accidental
consequence of this rearrangement is that the info-macl mailing list is
now being archived on the wrong machine (and I don't think it' easy to have it
be automatically archived on the right machine.)

I'll try to put the up-to-date archive on our FTP server later this afternoon,
and try to remember to do so periodically (every few weeks or so.)  This will
unfortunately mean that the archive is generally a week or two behind the
mailing list traffic.  Somewhat better than being 4 months behind ...
