Hi Stephan,

First of all, a great big thanks to Cheryl for all her efforts over 
the years.

Second, thanks to you for offering to take over.

I'd like things to keep going (and I've voted accordingly) To me, 
it's not only the music, but the chance to make contact (if only 
virtual) with people all over the world that makes it worthwhile - 
and its a bummer about all the old stuff being lost!

ps one thing does puzzle me - if the list had been taken down, why 
wasn't there some sort of general notification by Yahoo of the 
closure? Surely a generic email could've been sent out to let us all 
know! I can only assume that it was only your dedication Stephan that 
revealed this.

Hi Jeff,

good point. Well, I already started the poll. Maybe people are just 
lazy to leave the group if they're no longer interested so maybe the
poll will make them decide...

as most of you will have noted, the Powderworks mailing-list 
has been closed for the past couple of weeks. I have asked 
the former list owner Cheryl to pass the list on to me so 
everybody can decide whether the list should continue to 
exist. Currently there are 640 members on the list. 
Regrettably, due to the temporal closing of the list, all 
past messages, files, photos and links have been lost so I'd 
like to ask you to contribute and help to rebuild these 
contents. For now the big question is if this list should 
stay on at all considering that Midnight OIl is no longer. I 
will start a poll on this soon. I am new to managing a 
mailing list so please bear with me if things don't run so 
smooth in the beginning. Finally, I want to thank Cheryl for 
hosting this list for the past couple of years and for giving 
me the opportunity to take over.

I can't see any need for a poll.  People who think there is no 
longer any
point to a Midnight Oil list can unsubscribe.  Those who think 
there is can
stay.  Everyone's happy.
