I personally have finally been getting something usefull out of this list. Not that it is much in the way of progress, but it has at least got a number of people to come together about something. And that is more than i have experienced from this list since joining.

As for your plea for more madness? show me madness and i will much happier. Get this many people together to talk about madness, and we all will be extatic. Madness is ok. I just havent seen any madness worth talking about.
