This is the second consecutive time a planned downtime is not announced 
on either mailing lists.

This seems to me planned obsoletion of the mailing lists.

Was the planned obsoletion of the mailing lists also announced on reddit?

Personally I refuse to use reddit and many web 2.0 things for both 
pragmatic (usability) and ideological reasons.

The most important pragmatic reason for me is retarded or no attempt at 
mark-as-read and show-all-and-only-those-unread.

For now, if a web 2.0 source I care enough about provides RSS, I make do 
with adding it to Google Reader, which provides mark-as-read and 
show-all-and-only-those-unread as perfectly as long-existing email programs.

But it is always refreshing to see that our young ones are heading to a 
brave new world of synergy in which the only web 2.0 programmers who 
have heard of the discrete math idea of "subset" are the elite ones at 

And to think that I once joked that in the future only math PhDs, and 
only some of them, know how to divide.
