I had forgotten about this one. IIRC it was once hosted by Crest(?) but it got
closed down for some reason. Good to see it still going, but a better link for it
may be http://listserv.repp.org/mailman/listinfo/strawbale which will take you to
the signup page.
But to refer back to Walter's original suggestion. How about keeping the current
mailing list as it is, but linking it to a web resource site? This could include, for
example, a comprehensive FAQ, maybe have space for people to report on
projects they have undertaken, perhaps have a basic guide to construction
techniques, techincal reports, an announcements page, and a detailed links
page? A regular automated mailing could be sent to this list to remind people
It could be a place for a forum, too, but I worry that too many forums and lists
could be counter productive.
It would be a large undertaking that would need regular updating, but could
involve the contributions of several people.
Finally, Walter, I agree that there is an art to effective snipping and quoting that
makes things easier for the reader. I expect this is particularly true for anyone
who subscribes to the 'digest' version of the list, who will see much repeated text.
We shouldn't make it a big issue, but it would help if people could delete
