Another possibility is to find a university sponsor.  One with a good
agricultural program might well be interested - sponsoring a group like
this is dirt cheap.

I agree that we ought to get off Yahoo - even when it works, it is
awkward.

(I have most posts since 22 May 2000 on my hard drive, and could
probably extract them from Netscape if it's too hard to get them off of
Yahoo.)
