No reason to Panic.
If you go to Yahoo Groups (http://groups.Yahoo.com you can join the
MasterCook Discussion group on
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MastercookDiscussion and the MasterCook Recipe
list on http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MC_recipes.
Another off-shoot is a nice list for Tried 'n True (Tested) recipes the
group decided to run under http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MCTaste_Tested.
The biggest topic of discussion in the last 2 weeks has been where the
members of these lists will go after Sierra closes theirs. These two lists
were already in existence, and the majority have signed into them.
As far as "not wasting time" entering things into MasterCook? Consider that
there are 95 lists on Yahoo alone devoted to MasterCook. This doesn't
include EzBoard, the Sierra Boards, Topica and many more. Let alone 97% of
the recipes listed online being in MC format!
I hope this calms any panic <g> about Sierra closing the lists. They've
been around far too may years to just disappear into the sunset.
Life is choices; make good ones -- but make 'em!
