Good job Brett. Unfortunately for everybody, once you create a Google+ page that literally destroys the mailing list within 48 hours. I don't know how Google does it, but they actually found a way to purge the archives and root the mailing list server for whatever organization starts the page. It was good knowing you guys.

Good luck. Out there.

Signing off for the final time.

Nobody is replacing the list. I created a G+ page for NOLUG if anyone is interested.

In mailing list, I can see every post with least effort.
With FB, I have no Idea how many posts are already beyond easy reach, due to the massive amount of other posts daily. I don't even care.
I have "subscribed" ("liked") some technical things of possible interest in the FB, I do not remember, how many months ago I saw any of their posts in my feed.
In short FB is not a replacement to mailing list.

LUGs are for more than just free tech support for newbies.  NOLUG in particular is good for networking (for example the job posting that came across the other day) and for meeting geeky people who live near enough to hang out with (though I never make it to any of the meetings).___________________
