I've received several volunteers from people for the various open
positions, but there is one position that hasn't been spoken for.

Somebody is still needed to take over the editing of the ShadowTalk log.
This will require you to once-weekly get the log from the listserv,
remove the mailing headers, mistakes, and administrative postings as well
as doing corrections of serious formatting errors. You will then have to
send it to a HEARN address. Finally, you need to ZIP the file and put it
up on the cerebus FTP site.

If you are interested, please let me know ASAP.

Rob, I'm interested in the Log editing job.

To be frank, the main reason I'd like to do this is, somewhat, to
go through back issues and read them all, and to keep up with
the current storylines -- sometimes I lose track of what's going
where, and editing the log would give me the chance to reorganize
my thoughts. Also, I'd like to see if I couldn't structure all
of the postings in 'chronological order' -- not only the order
in which they reached the dump location, but the order in which,
supposedly, they were written -- if somebody has six posts one
after the other, yeah, those can go together -- but if someone
else wrote down that these came hours apart, well.....
why not, in the log, put them where they've supposedly gone?

BTW, I'm sorry this isn't in the correct application sequence.

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
