the mirror crack'd
grady at ibiblio.org

So, those of you who read ch-scene via email may [not] be surprised to
learn that sometime in the past month or so, the mirror between the list
and alt.music.chapel-hill halfway broke, in the sense that stuff posted
to the list still flows to the newsgroup, but stuff posted to the
newsgroup is no longer flowing to the list. I am lame, so I didn't
notice this until today. Sorry.
The gateway that we've been using for the past umpty-zillion years (so
long that I can't find any of my original correspondence with the people
who set it up, although I at least know who they were) is/was operated
by a private company that's in the UseNet business (a strange bidness to
still be in in 2007, no doubt). It's possible that they turned off this
free service, or maybe it just broke & needs to be fixed.
I sent 'em an email; we'll see what they say.
In the meantime, I have attempted to fall back to a possibly
less-reliable gateway that may or may not still exist. Still waiting to
see if anything shows up via it. Not holding my breath.
If both of these projects fail, then I'm going to have to put on my
thinking cap. I'm not really optimistic about the possible outcome of
that, so let's hope one of the first two options works.
Bottom line: until further notice, if you're hoping to get a relatively
complete picture of what's being discussed, you're going to have to
either visit the NNTP server of your choice, or go here:
Sorry for the inconvenience. Please feel free to post suggestions,
useful or otherwise.
