It seems that that latest version of sendmail doesn't like executing
programs from /etc/aliases except if it's majordomo.
I'm helping my roommate Rob install some mailing list
software. I use something other than majordomo which works for me
and is rather simple to configure and use.
Only he's running Sendmail 8.9.3 and when we put the appropriate magic in
/etc/aliases I keep getting back:
sh: mailserv not available for sendmail programs
554 "|/home/mailserv/bin/mailserv nnnnnnn-l request"... Service unavailable
Which is new to me.
So I'm downloading the source code to Sendmail to see why it's failing.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
