Sorry, we based our ideas on Greg Lindahl :)

Once again, this list is full of useful historical viewpoints 
and a mine of information and experience. It got cited on the Debian 
user list this morning by me as a model - this just to let you all know 
what was said:

	If you want to see a very good example of a mailing list with
	a high signal-noise ratio, technical excellence and lots of 
	interesting sidelights - the beowulf list (archives of 
	www.beowulf.org) is always worth a browse. The major players
	there are real experts - even the off-topic stuff is interesting
	and thought-provoking

Debian released a new stable release over the Easter weekend, so I've 
been busy helping test stuff out and answering user questions. I
come here to this list for civilized company, knowledge and expertise 
and am never disappointed. I can find English folk song experts, radio 
amateurs, physicists and mathematicians scattered all over the 'Net - but I 
can't find a similar erudite and cultured _community_ in a 
single list anywhere else.

All the best,
