Sounds OK so far if the points being negotiated turn out all right.

Two very good points made are  a) the progress involved in distancing 
ourselves from commerce and the academic world and  b) the benefits 
of possibly getting backup servers set up so we're not completely 
dependent on one server functioning.

I would like to see Hans very much tied in to the new setup as a 
proven factor of reliability and backup if anything should go wrong.

In general I think the present period is one in which the biggest 
challenge is for us to get working together for big goals and to 
learn to accept differences that would previously inevitably have led 
to splits. The process will take place on a lot of fronts at the same 
time, often invisibly. Suddenly, perhaps after a seeming lull, an 
action will occur that reveals a new level of cooperation and 
direction. This development of our lists could well be a molecular 
step leading in that direction. It won't replace our conscious party 
work, but it'll help the tide come in.

Have the MEA got the means to join us as a backup option?
