    Re: An experimental Navigation List

    For those of us who have sitting on the sidelines, observing the discussions 
    between the heavy hitters on this list, I would like to ask the following 
    Is Navigation-L on its way out? Should we all simply migrate over to Frank's 
    site and start posting there? Notwithstanding that I have signed on to 
    Frank's rogue site :-^), my sense of loyalty precludes my abandoning Dan's 
    site altogether. It has served us well all of these years.
    But now Dan appears to be throwing in the towel too.
    And despite the doom and gloom, it appears to me that the crew is still 
    actively participating in discussions on Navigation-L.
    How about we get out of limbo and make a decsion, en masse?  Or is that really 
    possible with such a diverse group?
    Personnally, I think Dan will have to shut down Navigation-L before I abandon 
    ship. Loyalty is stubborn trait in me.
