This e-mail list began in 1994, early summer. I don't remember when,
with about a 1/2 dozen to a dozen people. Anyone out there in that
original number have any better data on that?
I didn't begin to number the posts until I switched to the Webster U.
server on June 24, 1999. There were roughly 5 years, 1825 days in which
I sent out unnumbered messages. Given even an average of 7 a day, which
I think is probably quite low, that would be another 13,000 messages
which have disappeared into cyber-space.
I know that Webster U. has promised us a searchable archive, and the
current 3003 messages should be in it. I don't know what the hold
up is, but it seems not yet ready. I'll give you a progress report
when I can.
