After 15 years of activity, sci.techniques.mass-spec will no longer be a Usenet newsgroup. We have been approving articles from
here at Tech, and the IT people have decided to decommission the news server and allow the software license to expire on December
31. At that time, the newsgroup will cease operation.

As the newsgroup ends, we are transferring things to a mailing list. John Bartmess of UTK has been sending out summaries of
newsgroup postings since the group started, and we will continue that list in place of the newsgroup. Some of you are already
subscribers, and you should have received a message from John about the change. If you are not subscribed to the mailing
list, you may do so at https://ion.chem.utk.edu/mailman/listinfo/stms. The mailing list will be moderated as the newsgroup
was, so spam shouldn't reach you.

At this time of change, I'd like to thank John, Sarah (Shealy) Cepeda, and Ken Busch for encouragement and assistance in setting
up the newsgroup and remailer. I also want to thank Sarah for her work as a co-moderator from the start of the group.

As John said in his message to current list members, there may be a few glitches while the list operation gets settled, so I
hope you'll bear with us. I'm hopeful that STMS will still be a useful resource for mass spectrometry.
