[Assam] 20th Anniversary

Today happens to be the 20th anniversary of the erstwhile luitoria mailing list that began on my computer aazoli.cstp.umkc.edu. I'm posting below the original message. Back then some people were on BitNet, which doesn't exist anymore. We could send to bitnet addresses by using a gateway. Also, the via address % concept is no longer allowed (mostly for security reason).

    Hi everyone,

       Welcome to a new mailing list: luitporia !

       This   mailing    list    is    intended    for    people
    directly/indirectly/some way related to Assam/North-East In-
    dia. However, anyone else interested is welcome to join this
    list.  The  idea of this list is to provide a global mailing
    list accessible to EVERYONE from ANYWHERE (almost  anywhere)
    by sending message to just one address and to provide an in-
    formal forum to discuss/pass news about Assam, Assamese com-
    munity  in  North America and Europe (yes at present we have
    one person getting this mail message across the Atlantic  in
    UK,  see  list  below)  and the like. In future, I hope I'll
    (we'll) find out about someone directly in India who  I  can
    add  to the list (At present, there are several sites in In-
    dia like TIFR, NCST, IITs which can be  accessed  by  e-mail
    from this side of the world).

       I have been meaning to set up such  a  mailing  list  for
    quite sometime.  Now that I have my own workstation "aazoli"
    (couldn't think of a better name!) and that there are a fair
    number (22 as of now) of people with e-mail access, I decid-
    ed it's time to do so.

       The Internet e-mail address for this mailing list is:

                 luitporia at aazoli.cstp.umkc.edu

    and should work from everywhere. People who  are  on  BITNET
    will  hopefully  figure it out how to send mail to this list
    (using jnet or some other interface).

       The initial list has been set up with the  names  of  the
    people  with whom I have been communicating (ir)regularly by
    e-mail and the names provided  to  me  by  Jugal  Kalita  of
    Colorado  Springs, Colorado. (Thanks, Jugal). I like to apo-
    logize to you for adding your name to the list  without  ob-
    taining your permission. (Anyone who would NOT like to be on
    this mailing list should send me a message  so  that  I  can
    delete  his/her  name). If you know of anyone else who might
    be interested in being added to this  mailing  list,  please
    let him/her contact me at my address given below.

       I would appreciate if you could  acknowledge  receipt  of
    this mail by sending me a message at my e-mail address list-
    ed below (Please send me correction on name/e-mail address).
    Finally, please excuse me if you got multiple copies of this
    message; bear with me as I set up this initial list.

       Thank you.

       Happy e-mailing :-)
