georg -

 I just moved onto 8 acres, on the rainy upslopes of Mauna Kea (at about
1400').  Completed a PDC at a site down the road from me, so these days it's
a lot of mapping, reading, walking around, thinking, planting some big trees
I know I'm gonna want (avocado), etc.  And I have some contract computer
work I'm avoiding, partially because the solar power system isn't what it
could be and doesn't allow me online too often... and partially because
outside is a lot nicer than inside...

 I thought of making a seperate mailing list for development just to keep it
out of the way of people who really don't want to read all the emails... in
my experience a healthy dev project generates a lot of email...
