[Buddha-l] Anniversaries

As 2011 draws to a close, buddha-l celebrates the twentieth anniversary of its founding in the autumn of 1991, and the tenth anniversary of the "buddhist" and "buddha-l" lists being collapsed into a single list that incorporates the vices of both and the virtues of neither. Hardly a days goes by that I don't think it's time for buddha-l to become impermanent, but it keeps sluggishly plodding along. 

For those of you who have forgotten the history of buddha-l (or its predecessor, buddhist at jpntohok), an idiosyncratic account of the early days is to be found on an old website that also should be dead by now but keeps limping along like a vampire in search of a stake to be driven through its heart:


All the merry crew of elves who sleep in the control room of buddha-l wish all you subscribers a pleasant and prosperous 2012. May you all get a life.
