Hi All,

The four people chosen to the next List admins, in my estimation from having
known them in some manner for many years, couldn't have a higher regard.  My
silent vote of use will be cast accordingly.  I will continue to use what is
already here and established.

Dear Fellow Omnis Developers,

We are pleased to announce that the lists have been transferred to under the domain. No money changed 
hands, and the new stewards are volunteers. The archives will be 
transferred with the lists.  You will recognize the domain because 
there is also a search engine for the archives there, now making the 
lists and search engine at a convenient single domain.

The list administrators are Mark Phillips, Brian O'Sullivan, Fred 
Haislmaier and Dan Ridinger.  All four are well-known, 
greatly-respected, long-standing members of the Omnis community with 
impeccable credentials. They are all Omnis developers themselves and 
have had exposure to many different facets of the Omnis world over 
many years.  We are confident that they will make a great team and 
honorable custodians of the lists for years to come.

For those of you who don't know them, here is a short bio on each of them.

Mark Phillips - Mark is owner of Mophilly and Associates, based in 
San Diego.  Many know him from his time at Raining Data and he has 
the scars to prove it.
Brian O'Sullivan - Brian is a Sr. Systems Specialist at DuPont and is 
based in Philadelphia.  A former Blyth consultant, Brian now provides 
technical guidance to a large team of of developers for DuPont 
stretching from North America to China to the EU.
Fred Haislmaier - Fred is a independent developer based in Virginia. 
Many know him as a former list administrator and *he* has the scars 
to prove it.
Dan Ridinger - Dan is owner of FutureChalk, Inc. and is based in 
Vancouver, Canada.  He is an independent developer and is also on the 
staff of Simon Fraser University.  He often uses Omnis as examples in 
his lectures.

The lists will be transferred seamlessly, there is no need to 
unsubscribe from or to subscribe to 
For your convenience, all lists will be the same name as they were at, i.e. omnisdev-en at, 
omnisdev-de at, etc.  You will need to change your 
filters if you use them for the lists and they are domain based.

Mark, Brian, Fred and Dan will post their own welcome announcement shortly.
