I'm thinking now along the lines of having something like "About
Grubstreet" and/or "Contact Us" -- lots of sites have these kinds of
things so people tend to look for them.  We could put the NMS formmail
on "Contact Us" as well as the email address.

I think I'll leave it for now and change it only if we start getting
spam.  Any objections?

OK.  Ideas for where to publicise it?  Various blogs, I suppose.
I've added the URL to my news .sig, which might help a little bit.

I tried it with Galeon -- it let me preview but not save.  So I
figured it as a browser issue and sure enough lynx Does What We Want.
I've just put a search box in the Sandbox and will put one on the
front page later when head less fuzzy and can think about design
things, unless someone else does it first.
