Hi All,

After a few days of hard work, I think that I have now successfully moved
both the SeeSat-L list (and accompanying lists such as SeeSat-D and
UseSat-L), as well as the whole WWW archive containing the VSOHP and
SeeSat-L WWW archives to a new server.

Here are a few questions and answers. Please read them carefully. The move
will be transparent for the mailing lists, but the web-pointers have
changed considerably!

Q1. What is the new server called?
A1. www.satobs.org (with IP address of

Q2. Where is it located?
A2. At a commercial webhosting company, somewhere in Southern California,

Q3. Where do I send SeeSat-L (and SeeSat-D and UseSat-L) messages to from
    now on?
A3. You should send them to:
      SeeSat-L@lists.satellite.eu.org or SeeSat-L@satobs.org
      UseSat-L@lists.satellite.eu.org or UseSat-L@satobs.org
    For the mailing lists, the blackadder.lmsal.com domain will work for
    another week or so, since I have ensured that all mail for SeeSat-L
    and UseSat-L will be forwarded to the new server. In about a week or
    so I will remove that forwarding. So you should use the new server
    (lists.satellite.eu.org or satobs.org).

Q4. Where should I send administrative requests, such as subscribe or
A4. Same answer as A4, except you send requests to:
    SeeSat-L-request@lists.satellite.eu.org    or

    SeeSat-D-request@lists.satellite.eu.org    or

    UseSat-L-request@lists.satellite.eu.org    or

Q5. Where can I find the Visual Satellite Observer's Home Page (VSOHP)? 
A5. Unfortunately, this change will not be as easy. In the process of
    moving the web-pages, I have considerably simplified the directory
    structure. The VSOHP will now be at:
    http://www.satobs.org/  (effective immediately) or 
    http://www.satellite.eu.org (this address will take a few days to
    If all else fails, you can also access the new pages at:

    The old link (www.satellite.eu.org/sat/vsohp/satintro.html) is now
    obsolete, though there is a pointer to the new link!   

Q6. Where can I find the new SeeSat-L WWW archives?
A6. These pages will move to:
    http://www.satellite.eu.org/seesat/ (once the domain name has
                                         propagated) or
    http://www.satobs.org/seesat/ (effective immediately) 
    The web-archive will be updated immediately once a new message arrives 
    at SeeSat-L. Again, the www.satellite.eu.org address will take a
    few days to propagate. The old link (www.satellite.eu.org/sat/seesat/)
    will no longer work.
Q7. Has anything else changed at the web-archives?
A7. I've cleaned up a lot of old and broken links.
    I've added a local copy of the SeeSat-L FAQ, which is now also at:
Q8. Will everything work perfectly?
A8. Hopefully, but there will probably be a few glitches here and there.
    I appreciate any feedback on broken links (there might still be some).
Q9. Any more changes in the near future?
A9. Most probably not. There is a distinct possibility that I will add
    a new anonymous ftp-site to the new server, more to come.
