This may seem silly, but I still remember when minivend-users and
interchange-users merged around 4.6.0 and list activity picked up to around
30 mails a day, and never dropped back down. It seemed like a flood of
newbies came to the list every time there was a freshmeat announcement or a
mention in the news. It's nice.
I'm sure people still remember when that first slackware cd-roms started
shipping and all the newbiews flooded linux-kernel and linux-newbies (when
vger was on rutgers.edu). Sunday is my day to wax this and wane
that. (Sorry for the torture).
