Title: End of an era
Post by Secret Drinker on Today at 16:53
I'm not sure quite what to say about the end of the old MV mailing list (or even where to say it, hence this posting in the OT area). But I assume I'm not the only one who experienced a tiny twinge of sadness at its passing, in spite of this new forum carrying on the good work. The nearest thing I can remember to it was listening to Radio London's final broadcast in 1967.

I'd just like to say again how very grateful I am to Steve for starting the MV forum seven years ago, and for all his tireless efforts on our behalf since then. It's brought a lot of pleasure to me and many others.

Here's looking forward to the next seven years and beyond...

MV is dead - long live MV!

Quite, Paul, I absolutely agree.  Whilst I'm delighted that MV will continue via this forum, Steve's 'Final report' did indeed invoke much sadness.  Felt a bit like a friend had died.  Thankfully though, I have plenty of others...

Ah yes, Radio London (Big L on 266!).  Every day I'd come home from school, go straight to my parents' ancient wooden box radio and switch on.  God, the nostalgia....

Think of it more as a friend growing up and leaving home, Gerry.

I've also been impressed with Steve's "Follow-up" messages since the list proper closed.  No one can say they haven't been told about the new forum now.

As ever, the customer care here is superb!
Thanks everso....

Indeed. We early adopters should be grateful that people are being looked after thus, I suppose.
I wonder if there are MVs somewhere out in the Antartic who've just gotten something along the following lines:

alert stop mv email service no longer extant stop make transition to yabb asap stop you have been warned stop

All right, yeah, I did feel I needed an excuse to test that one out. Tech junkie me...
