Message board slowdown

I'm sending this quick circular to make everyone aware that I know about the current issues that are making the forum almost unusable, and I'm bending the ears of the hosts. 

Circulars archived

For various reasons, a few people did not receive circular #1.  All circulars are now being archived from the Mailing List page that is linked from the front page of  Regsitration for the mailing list has just passed 850, and is now levelling off at about one or two people a day.

Best wishes,
