Of course, I prefer installing from source, too. Especially when it
comes to things like Mailman. The irony here is that for the NTP
Public Services project, when I initially installed Mailman so that I
could switch over from Majordomo (like, four or five years ago), I
used the BSD port system. So, when it came time to do the upgrade to
2.1.9, I ended up using the BSD port system once again.

I've gotten to the point where I no longer talk to people about
switching OSes. I may talk about the superiority of using BSD
filesystems with Soft Updates for mail-related applications, and if
people are curious then I'll be able to talk about that in more depth.
But otherwise I've gotten to the point where I figure that most
people aren't going to switch OSes just because I suggest it, and
that my doing so just annoys them and doesn't have any positive

Trend Micro has announced that they will cancel the stop.mail-abuse.org
mail forwarding service as of 15 November 2006. If you have an old
e-mail account for me at this domain, please make sure you correct that
with the current address.
