As for listserv problems, there are two. (1) It doesn't start properly when the
computer is rebooted which is fortunately pretty seldom. (2) I'm allowing

It is a simple matter to restart lsv and it doesn't loose posts made when it is
down. It is also a simple matter to let me know when it needs restarting,
