I like the fact that this list is focussed on FX.php. It is a low volume
list, with a supportive community. Please keep it going.

Of course, even on a new server I can leave the list "as is", but as there's not a lot of traffic, and most people here are likely on other FM-related web lists, I thought it a good topic for discussion. So here are the options that I've considered so far; let me know if you think of others:
