Subject: [ROVERNET - UK] Rovernet moving

> The company who is paying the bill for the Rovernet
> mailing list site is New Information Paradigms or NIP
> Ltd. in the UK.  They are running it from one of their
> web domains called <ccdata.com>. They would like to
> sell that domain name and they have asked us to move.
> In anticipation of that move, I have reserved the
> domain <rovernet.ca> as a locating home page for a new
> location.  The problem is how to seamlessly move that
> database of 308 names and email addresses to a new
> location and the present archives of messages.
> Currently, the systems administrator of the
> <roverclub.ca> website and a few other sites which I
> manage, has been unhelpful in the extreme.  All
> aspects of the move will have to be up to me and the
> systems administrator of our current list in the UK.
> He is willing to help.
> I am working out the technical details of a move. I
> need to determine if it is possible to move the
> Rovernet membership database as a block or do I have
> to type in individual names and addresses separately.
> I'd like to be able to also move the archives as a
> block.  The current problem is that I can't "see" the
> folder on my test site.  I have asked the UK admin
> chap if the archives can be exported to another form.
> I am awaiting an answer.
> Linda and I will be leaving on May 29 for a trip to
> the car show in Massachusetts and then on to the
> Maritime provinces, Montreal, Ottawa, and Toronto
> before returning home in mid-July.  I don't plan a
> Rovernet move before that date.
> I have set-up a new "Rovernet-CANADA" test site.  I
> have entered my three email addresses and the system
> seems to work.
> I have two questions to ask of the subscribers.
> (Most important):
> 1.  When it is time to move the list, are you
> interested in being moved over to the new list?
> *****NOTES:****
> You may have to enter your personal options and reset

> have selected.
> You may or may not receive an automatic notice to
> confirm your membership.
> If you are agreeable, you don't have to respond to
> this message.
> If you *do not* want to be subscribed to the new list,
> please say so:  <p6rovers at yahoo.com>

> 2.  If you are willing to be (perhaps temporarily)
> subscribed to the new test list, please let me know.
> It would help me test and learn a new system.  I
> haven't had to administer the operation before. You

> useful if you just replied to say that you received
> them.  This wouldn't happen too often.
> It could be that better access to the files of the
> mailing list will be required and I have to establish
> the list on a site which specializes in running this
> "Mailman" mailing list.
