And for what it's worth: I'm not a woman, but last year my internet
connection broke down (lightning strike), I started a new job and was
looking for a new house to buy--all around the same time.  So I'm very
well aware about "real life" getting in the way sometimes...  ;-)

I really welcome all new volunteers and, like I said before, I want to
help them with how to do mailing list moderation without using too much
