How do your mailinglists work?

Question: How do your mailinglists work?
Answer: Mailing-Lists are an easy way to realise discussions with several partners at a time via E-Mail. Each discussion group has it's own address (e.g. c64@padua.org). Every E-Mail that is being sent to that address will also be mailed to everyone on that list. Those lists may also be restricted (e.g. update@padua.org). This means that only certain people are allowed to send messages to the list.

Majordomo (the program that handles these lists) can receive your orders via E-Mail. You just need to send an E-Mail to majordomo@padua.org. The subject of the message will be ignored. The body should include your order.

Here's what you could possibly tell Majordomo and how the program will react:

  • help: sends you some usefull information
  • lists: see which lists are offered
  • info LISTNAME: (please replace LISTNAME by the name of the list that you are refering to) gives you informationen about the list
  • subscribe LISTNAME: (please replace LISTNAME by the name of the list that you are refering to) puts you on the named list
  • unsubscribe LISTNAME: (please replace LISTNAME by the name of the lis t that you are refering to) takes you off the named list

To send a message to any of the lists, just send Mail to LISTNAME@padua.org and replace LISTNAME by the appropiate name of the list.


    

What is it all about?

Question: What is it all about?
Answer: Padua is a group on the Commodore 64. From time to time they release demos or tools for that computer. We have to admit the computer might be considered a bit outdated, but it certainly is a cult computer for us. This is the reason why we are trying to keeping the scene spirit alive. Also we never really seem to run out of ideas, so we keep on performing.

    

Where does the name come from?

Question: Where does the name come from?
Answer: The name was invented by Sanflex, when a new group was to be formed by the former X-Rated subgroup called Elect. Sanflex always said that it was the name of a Spanish sailingship, but he never was able to proove that he was right.

Later on we realised that PADUA was the English name of a city in Italy (PADOVA). We even wrote to their tourist office and got some information from them which was brought along to the Horizon Party by us.

Even later we also found out that PADUA actually was an abbreviation, which either meant Prostitutes Are Doing Unusual Acts (? by MAD) or the more serious explantion: Professional Artists Doing Useles Artwork. And here's even anothe r one: Presenting Artistic Design to Unrealistic Action (submitted by Ronnie Padua).
