to answer your question, please allow me to quote the 87k list again:

>>>>> index flasher-digest

>-rw-rw---- 1 majordom daemon 29076 Feb 13 1998 v01.n001

Notice the _total_ listed there? That's where I got it from. Maybe you
didn't notice it because, like myself, you consider this method of
retrieving information less than ideal.

>It would be nice to have a searchable archive, but discussion here about
>a one for this list is of little value,

Well, it at least was of sufficient value to convince a number of people to
respond both on- and off-list suggesting that it was indeed a worthy
endeavor to persue. Besides, it may well come to pass that, should
permission end up being granted, it will be members of this list who will
co-operatively create one!

I sent him an e-mail last evening doing just so... we will await his decision!

BTW, John... just so there is no misunderstanding: Please don't allow this
discussion to in any way clour your opinion of me ;-) From my limited
exposure to this list to date, and from the surfing I did off your sig
file, I can see that you are an important, integral, and devoted
protagonist in the cause known as 'Flash'. It is just that I see a real
functionality lacking here, and if needed will be willing (with help form
others, please!!) to rectify that situation.
