Bom dia evoltistas!

The evolt.org mailing lists will be going down for a small period of 
time(1-2 hours) in a couple minutes for a major overhaul of the mailing 
list software that has served us well for nearly three years...

There are lots of cool new features in this new release, and it should 
make all of our lives, as they pertain to evolt mailing lists at least, 
a bit easier :)

I'll be letting you know more about the new features when the upgrade is 
complete. If you're wondering how to spend the next two hours now that 
the evolt mailing lists are down, I'd recommend learning more about the 
other fine resources evolt.org provides such like
http://directory.evolt.org (searchable directory of web dev links/sites)
http://lists.evolt.org/index.cfm/a/harvest/ (browse the tip archive!)

And before you know it, the lists will be back up.

There may be some small glitches that accompany moving 3000+ list 
subscriptions to a new system, but nothing *major*. Some of us may have 
to re-configure our mailing list options to get the MIME version of the 
digest instead of the plain one for example.

Again, I'll have more information once the move is complete.. Thanks for 
your patience and understanding, feel free to contact me if you have any 
questions or problems :)

-Running out of witty comments-

p.s. - if anyone has that email of x-evolt headers that george dillon 
compiled a while back, please send it to me :)
