Out of the Blue

Running our mail server on an HP scientific calculator has proven an interesting and eventful experience, but unfortunately we seem to have stressed it once again, since it seems to currently be blindly redirecting incoming mail into the bit bucket. Considering the amount of spam and viral mail we receive, this demonstrates pretty good judgment. Unfortunately, no matter what proportion of it is worthless, we still get loads of mail we would like to read, so once again we've got Scotty running around engineering making metaphors about our chances at a repair, while also furiously looking to see if we can get something more reliable to serve as a mail server like a C-64 or one of those clever birds from The Flintstones who can chisel words onto slabs of rock so quickly. In the meantime, if you have anything you'd like to let us know about, please continue to use the temporary bluesnews@abydos.com address.

Since you're having e-mail problems, why don't you setup a link on the front page to post e-mail news that otherwise would get lost, to a private forum that only you can read. That way when your e-mail server goes down, anyone can post news to your board. Just make sure that they have to login in to do it.

Maybe everyone even gets used to posting news for your access only and it might even start taking a big load of your server.

You should give it a try, you're not going to lose anything by trying it.

Besides, this should really cut back big time on the spam problem since you really shouldn't be getting any or very little spam that way. Die, spam, die!
