No worries!  The current address is  "School of Webcraft Discussion List" <
p2pu-webcraft at lists.p2pu.org>.

It will probably get more responses if you send it and then I chime in.
Lately the discussion list has primarily been messages from me and noone
else seems to be starting conversations. I wonder if we made the correct
decision moving away from the large Google Group.

I can also send it to the announcements list? I need to do a Webcraft update
and will include it in that text today.
