I sent several messages to the list between 16:20 and 16:30 GMT which
were simply lost. These were therefore sent some time before the
announced time of the list being closed down - timing which I chose
deliberately. This is not an acceptable way to manage a list server. You
should refuse to accept messages which you are unable to deliver so that
they are queued for retransmission when the server comes up again.

I am resending these messages, when I can get Internet access from here
in Azerbaijan which is sometimes a problem. This is resulting in a
considerable delay to important traffic, and significant expense to me
as I have to pay by the minute for Internet access.
