I'm trying to get a list server configured to handle the
lists after we're dropped by Hearn, and I could use your
help in testing it. If everyone could subscribe to my
shadowtk list, and try out some of the features, I'd
appreciate it.

Send mail to <listproc@******.net> with the line:

subscribe SHADOWTK <your name>

To subscribe to the list. Sending mail to <shadowtk@******.net>
will send the message to the actual list, if you're subscribed.

If you have _any_ problems, let me know so I can try and get
this server going in time to replace our current service.

Phew!! I was getting worried there for a while.

Okay everybody:

Three cheers for Mark! Hip-Hip-HURRAHH!! ^_^

Well, now that I'm sending a message to plot-D I might as well comment on all
the fuss caused by Disbeliever. Some people gave the impression they felt
threatened by the existance of nega-mages - I'd just like to say that they
aren't such an unbalancing concept. A nega mage cannot get cybered up without
running the risk of losing his 'uniqueness', so his progress is limited to
what he may achieve through standard skills. As for the verosimilitude
of the concept, well, everybody accepts the existance of magic free zones,
so why not magic free people? (Could make a cool T-shirt outta that).

In any case, if nega-mages don't agree with you, you can just assume Disby
is a nutter (Wich he is, BTW) and that his videos are fakes.

Any of you ever hear of the flat-earth society? They really exist! (Well, they
certainly existed, I dunno if it still operates) These guys claimed against
all evidence that the earth was flat - And they had arguments for it.
It just occured to me that it might be interesting to do something similar
in the SR world - with a twist, since Disbeliever is genuinely unnafected
by magic. Look at it from the common man's point of view - Disby's arguments
are very convincing. The man on the street hardly ever sees any solid proof
of the existance of magic apart from the trids.

As for what someone said that he does nothing to advance the plot - Well, I wasn't aware
that there was any unifying plot! :) But seriously, you are right.
He doesn't really have anything to do with Shadowrunning per se.

Then again... his 'abilities' could come in very handy in some situations
but if someone wanted to use him in a run they'd have to convince him -
could be interesting, eh? :)

Mark, great job!!!! I've subscribed. Now let us see if posting works.

Time to see if you are getting somewhere Mark, this is your chance for
revenge from the lawsuit...:)
