I've received an explanation from the organisation that manages the
lists (http://www.linux.org.au/) about the recent outage.
On 2002-01-08 the machine which ran the lists had a power failure and
was forbily, but not cleanly, power cycled. This caused corruption of
the root filesystem and created some binaries (such as cron) to run but
not run correctly.
This wasn't noticed until recently and linux.org.au is taking measures
to ensure that it doesn't happen again.
