It doesnt matter to me if we drop egroups. I found it much harder to find messages after the change than before. Also, the thing I like with the listserv at brown is, i can find specific messages much easier. Instead of having to remember the subject, I just need to remember the general month it was posted in, and about what week also (i'm speaking of the webbified archive) _________________________________________________________ This ain't a yes, this ain't a no, just do your thang, we'll see how it goes
