Thanks Joel, I figured it was something like that and thought it abnormal if it
were blogged-only, so I was seeking clarification.  That's why I didn't go into
one of my usual tirades. :)

No problem.  

However, yes, I am trying to make the blog the easiest source of information for anyone to check, not only for 
informational articles like Adam's post last week, but for news like this change.  When information comes out that is 
important I'll post a blog article then an email pointing to the blog article.  (along with the twitter account that 
points to the blog as well).  Subscribe to the RSS feed (http://feeds.feedburner.com/Snort), or check it often.  
However you want to do it.

I want to make sure anyone is well informed of changes like this, and the elimination of any stale avenues of 
information -- to have one source of information for the Snort community (the blog) the goal.

I haven't been posting to the ET list because I don't want it to make it seem like Snort is spamming the ET list, 
(hopefully the people that are on the ET list are on the Snort-sigs list as well) but if you are interesting in me 
posting things like this to the ET list to point to the blog, if Matt says it's okay, I'm certainly willing to do so.

Forrester recently released a report on the Return on Investment (ROI) of
Google Apps. They found a 300% ROI, 38%-56% cost savings, and break-even
within 7 months.  Over 3 million businesses have gone Google with Google Apps:
an online email calendar, and document program that's accessible from your 
browser. Read the Forrester report: http://p.sf.net/sfu/googleapps-sfnew
