Fred, I have really enjoyed reading (and sometimes participating) in
the Math Hist list and hope that you can find another host for
it. Some suggestions are Yahoo Groups, Google, and
RootsWeb. RootsWeb is mainly family history, but there is enough
about people and history on the list that I imagine it would be
acceptable. Or it could be set up as a blog on some free blog
website. Also, what about the American Math Society website?

Anyway, thanks for all you've done for us and I hope it can continue.
