Oh Yes... OSLIST started as a phone operated bulletin board. And for sure
it doesn't exist in 4 colors/touch screen. BUT it has probably existed as
long or longer than any competitors, is searchable, carries the
thinking/sweat/arguments of those who discovered living in Open Space (that
would be 1000's) and Harold (the most recent curator) has done a
marvelous job. Thanks. Could it be better? Sure... but it has worked for ?
(20??)years! And please don't fix it if it ain't broke...
