Thanks Michael! I fell a bit daft now! Although,
it's not obvious from the web-site that you can get to
this page. Also, I don't seem to be logged-in, as I
can't post from that page (this is sent from an email,
as per ) What do I need to do?

Cheers

Nick

You'll have to be patient a little longer as it's read-only for the moment.

Another solution is to use Gmail for your mailing lists. It has a
unique interface that closely resembles the flat-threaded forum style
that seems most popular (I prefer branching threads personally). Its
also much faster than most web applications owing to its use of
javascript moderated xml transactions (no page reloads). If you need
an invite, I have 50 to spare.

I second the gmail suggestion - it's actually a faster way to use
lists than a mail client on my hard disk.

I read this forum with the news reader in Mozilla Tunderbird pointed to
news.gmane.org - gmane.music.equipment.slimdevices.general , in my
opinion the best way to do it. Web forums tend to have too much "noise"
i.e. graphics, colors etc. I have not tried Gmail yet.
