Maybe this summer I might drive up to bother Chuck and Jenny....we are thinking 
of hiking near 4 corners area. Depends on Windy City schedule and SCADA 
projects.......I think I can bribe him with choice El Paso eats to let me tour 
his chop shop.

    They have pretty much co-opted the whole AnimalFarm idea with my blessings 
and I get to go to the show once a year and see y’all.
    As much as I would love to do an old fashioned AnimalFarm, I am too old and 
lazy to put on the show.

    Yes, before I was on the Board at WISPA, they had hosted "manufacturer" 
listservs.  Chuck, was the moderator of the list for "motorola" at the time, 
and his list was moved over.  I wanted to host a MikroTik@ list, as I was a 
vendor at the time for WISPA.  That's when sh!t hit the fan, some other 
distributors got butthurt, and WISPA decided that the motorola list wasn't 
Chuck M's, and the MikroTik list wasn't mine anymore. I notified Chuck M of the 
pending issues and how my list was getting ripped from under me...and before 
WISPA could notify Chuck M that his list was going to be taken over, Chuck M 
converted it to the AFMUG list, shut down the motorola@wispa list and the AFMUG 
list was born.  Ahhhh...the memories :)

        Yes, Michael Anderson. He got pissed about the OT stuff on the
        motorola@ list. IIRC, shortly after the I QUIT incident, the list
        server went down and he said it was a h/w failure (while out of
        town? I don't remember if that was the case) and finally brought it
        back up. But it was too late and AFMUG was born. More accurately,
        the "Motorola II" list was born, and I believe that was hosted for a
        short time on the WISPA list serv?

        I think the combination of WISPAmerica and Animal Farm is great.

            The list was Part-15 at one time, and existed prior to WISPA.       
   Can’t recall the last name - Michael somebody ran the
            organization. One day Michael was mad about something and posted
            the infamous “I quit” email - and that was pretty much the end
            of Part 15 and the list.  I actually think that was during a
            Animal Farm session if I recall correctly.

            Chuck took over the list after that - I don’t think it was
            called AFMUG at the time, but it later became that.   Might have
            even been Motorola specific - not that it was ever on topic anyway.

            There are WISPA lists - but the AFMUG list has lived on.   Yes -
            it’s Chuck’s list though occasionally the members donate money
            for the cost of hosting it.

            This list has it’s advantages.   It’s membership leans toward a
            group of people who have known each other for a very long
            time.   You probably shouldn’t say bad things about WBMfg
            products (makes Chuck get all kranky) but everybody else if fair
            game.  I like it since it’s a place I can say things I can’t
            really say with a WISPA hat on (or at least I can’t say without
            blowback to WISPA).

                I merge my AnimalFarm email list with my MailChimp list
                about once a year.

                You do realize that this list is my list, right?

                So essentially every time I make a posting here I am
                spamming you, right?

                I used to do it every Friday right here on this list.
                But I think it is cleaner and better quality to use MailChimp.

                Did you unsubscribe from the Mail Chimp?  That will prevent
                it from ever
                happening again.

                I just got spammed by Chuck McCown. What's up with that?

                I sure as hell haven't signed up for any of his email lists
                nor done any
                business with him, or even indicate I would like to. I find
                it in extremely
                poor taste to mine the Af list for spam targets.
