Info-Mac Shutting Down for Two Weeks -- Beginning 12-Mar-97, the Info-Mac software archive and mailing list will be down for two weeks to allow the all-volunteer Info-Mac moderators to shift their operations from the venerable sumex-aim.stanford.edu to a new machine. No new uploads or digest messages will be accepted during this time, although Info-Mac mirrors worldwide will of course still be available. We'll put an announcement in TidBITS when Info-Mac is up and running at its new home at MIT. [GD]
