I agree with Neil !!!!

Shall i add that even as a partial lurker i enjoyed the good atmosphere and
sense of humour on this mailing list - seems to have turned a bit sour at
the end of next year.  Shows you don't even need a committee to get
infighting and power struggles, a bunch of human beings and a bit of time
are enough :-/
So let's hope that the good mood comes back, and i definitely hope Tony will
stay in, as the mix of serious/fun there was at the start seemed like a good

As for communicating mainly on IRC, this would indeed exclude some people
like me : i don't have access to internet at work (paranoid customer, very
painful), and at night, strange but true, i often have better things to do
than chat for an hour or 2.  
An idea for more or less equal debate would be to announce a meeting
time/subject on the mailing list (a net-event :-) ), so that people
interested to discuss that subject would join in on the IRC channel at that

Sorry for butting in late but i had a nice large break :-)

happy new year to you all !
