Why is it quiet, 'cos of the chicken 'n' egg nature of mailing lists -
people post techie-but-not-strictly-linux-related things to the ilug
list because they know that there are a lot of techies on the ilug
list, who might be interested/able to help. Ideally, all of the ilug
subscribers who were interested in technical chat would subscribe to
technobabble, which would then have a large number of techies on it,
people would realise that they will get the attention of as many
techies by posting to tb as ilug, and keep ilug free for linux issues.
