This is another combo post of both the status of the messed up evdl nabble
(which is why I am posting differently than before and filling up your
as well as my TX trip attending the San Antonio (SA) NDEW.

Recently, I sent another email to our evdl sys admin asking for a status, I
have not heard back.
Last email I got from our evdl sys-admin was he was busy with other things.
The nabble archive is still messed up after a month, and my news posts will
continue to clog your intrays. So, if you are not pleased that instead of
only receiving one EVnews email a day, has now turned into several, then let
our evdl sys-admin know. 

Currently, I just returned from a relocation-reconnoiter trip in Texas. I
will be busy with tasks to that end for a while, but once completed, and if
this evdl nabble archive snafu is not resolved, I will have to consider
making other arrangements (you'll have to get my EVnews posts from somewhere
else). Which seems a shame as we all had something going really well on the
evdl, and now ... its discombobulated.

My TX-trip adventure details would be OT for the evdl (no one wants to read
them anyway), but open to corrections from our local Tesla driving Texan
Willie, my experience has me not seeking Austin nor San Antonio (much too
much growth and intensity like the Silicon Valley I am trying to get away
from), but north of there where it is quieter (the sticks).

It will be quite a change for me from the intense EV scene of Silicon Valley 
(after I had taken the I-35 exit, I knew I was in (Silicon Valley-esk)
Austin when I saw my first 'Gunmetal Grey' Leaf, after not seeing an EV in
TX for a whole week).
Austin is fairly fat on public L3 EVSE, with a good dispersal of L2 all

Where I was north of there & later in SA ... forget-about-it ... nil, zip
public L3 EVSE.
It was like stepping back into the EV scene Silicon Valley had back in the
late 1990's 
(when enough public EVSE was just a mere twinkle in this EVangel's eye).

I attended the 9/16 SA NDEW EVent, where the SA public had plenty of EV
interest (they were quite hungry for more plugin information). I was having
so much enjoyment helping out, I all but ignored 95+F heat & all the pain of
being on my feet for several hours. 
Afterward, I took my spent/exhausted body back to my rental ice in the far
away parking lot, and rested in its AC awhile (their NDEW was a valuable
experience for me which I would do all again in a heart beat). Once I am
relocated, I can foresee me planning the long drive south each year to
attend SA's annual NDEW EVent.
