Dear members of Humanist,

My thanks to everyone who has offered suggestions and proposed varying 
degrees of support for the rebirth of our virtual common. It would 
appear that Humanist will be offline for the next two weeks or so, but 
such is the strength of consensus about its continuing value to the 
community I now have little doubt that it will return to active duty. 
The image that keeps coming to mind is of the ancient warrior laid out 
in his boat, surrounded by treasures, drifting into the fog and out to 
sea. Someday, perhaps, but not anytime soon.

Please, if you would, be patient while I consider the alternatives 
presented. Once I have a timetable for the work ahead I'll let everyone 
here know.

All the best, and again, thanks so much -- as inadequate as these words 
may be, they are the best I can muster while keeping a decorous lid on 
the drama :-).
