I have to admit that having a Web-based administration tool would be
just way to cool. I'm getting more and more and more people who think
that they should just e-mail around attachments. . . Why? Because
it's a button. Also, there's something to be said for immediate
Show me lists I control
Show me who's on *this* list I control
Remove these 5 people, add these 2.
Yes, *I* work well from an e-mail based administration scheme, but my
VP of engineering *doesn't*.
Having people subscribe by e-mail is also OK, but it's not very handy
for people who are clueless.
Well, just a thought.
