Techhats -- Airplanes and Trains and Computers, Oh My!


About Techhats
English (USA)

This is a private mailing list. If you weren't invited to join, then you have no business joining and you will be booted as soon as you do, and a complaint registered with your ISP.

If you were away during the great split debates, you should note that there are now several "hats" mailing lists which basically break up like this:


metadiscussion, announcements of social activities, actual urban legends.


discussion specific to the care and feeding of "oldhats", including hatting discussions.


discussion specific to the care and feeding of "younghats", including hatting discussions.


everything goes, especially Buffy The Vampire Slayer worship and praise.


discussions of things that are technical in nature, like airplanes and computers. Political discussions are definitely not wanted.


Bay Area, California.
