The original complaints were due to me being on holiday, and some 
existing hitch with the list configuration which means some posts need 
to be moderated through to cctalk (though it should have caught up now.)

But yes, the two lists are largely identical, though of course non-cc 
stuff doesn't make it into cctech. Almost anything goes on cctalk as 
most posts go through automatically anyway.

I think if everyone can refrain from posting non-cc stuff (and in this I 
would include: Queries about modern HW or SW without a direct CC 
relevance, long threads about character encoding schemes...) then we 
could go to a single list, but one might have to get used to being 
jumped on if posting something regarded as off-topic, and perhaps 
finding oneself moderated if persisting.
