Welcome to the everything list. It has been quiet for several months. It
only had a dozen or so subscribers when it was more active (from Jan to
July of this year), but now it has about 30. (I don't know what happened,
was the list invitation forwarded to some other forum?)

You can retrieve or search the archive of the mailing list by sending
email with "archive" as the subject and commands in the body. The commands
available are:

get filename ...
ls directory ...
egrep case_insensitive_regular_expression filename ...
maxfiles nnn

ls latest
get latest/12
egrep some.word latest/*

Looking forward to your post.
