Dear Leap-seconders, For the past seven years, this listserve has served as a forum for a considerable amount of discussion on UTC, generating some heat but more light. I have enjoyed my mostly-silent role as listserve manager, particularly as most of the real work was done by David Johns (and Ken Senior before him).
Lately, various technical developments are making it increasingly difficult for the U.S. Naval Observatory to maintain this listserve. We are fortunate that Tom Van Baak has agreed to assume the responsibility of hosting it. You should start submitting your emails to [EMAIL PROTECTED] All current subscribers are automatically being transferred to the new list so the hosting change should be somewhat transparent. Subscription information, archives, and other list information is at: http://six.pairlist.net/mailman/listinfo/leapsecs. We will verify that the new list is working and then on Friday we will close down the old list at rom.usno.navy.mil. If you did not get this message, or do not shortly receive the welcome message on the new list, please let Tom and me know. Tom's email is [EMAIL PROTECTED] and mine is [EMAIL PROTECTED] I will remain a member of this list, and look forward to following the continued discussion. Demetrios Matsakis
