Wow, a real mixed bag. On the one hand, because of a tremendous
amount of hard work, there is a very complete archive with thread
linking and date organization, much more complete than any of our
other archive efforts, for which I am grateful.
On the other hand, without a useful search or more complete header
information such as a single, hierarchical listing by some larger
block than daily, it's nearly impossible to find anything unless you
know fairly precisely when it was posted or are willing to plow
through all the messages by hand.
While I don't want to appear ungrateful for all the hard work and
team effort that took place, I'm anxiously awaiting a new interface
that will let me search to a specific message, and to see message
headings with a little more context and information.
