Change of Email Address

After over a decade of dialup speeds, missed messages, no filtering
(in my line, that might have been a good thing), unreliable servers,
and tech support that answered every single query with, "Well, you'll
have to tell me your username and password for me to check that," I
have finally had enough.

I know it sometimes doesn't show it on the mailing list postings, but
my ISP address has been the world's most recognizable
address, It's going bye-bye. Almost immediately.
It will, in fact, be used as a spam/email virus honeytrap by a
security company.

I have Internet service through Shaw, now. I did *NOT* manage to get, which ticks me off no end. I had to take (I have created a bunch of others, including and also, which partially made up for not
getting rslade.)

So, now I have to go through the process of telling everyone. (I also
have to go through the process of getting the change made on Yahoo,
and that is turning out to be not quite as easy as they let on.)
