This has been operational (but in testing) for quite some time now. Many people were unhappy with the egroups archives, as they were not searchable very far into the past -- we have pretty high traffic (often 1K msgs/month or so) and a lot of messages that are interesting for a long time, among the mass of less-durable communications.

Yes, I took away the icons because I could never tell what they stood for. One nice thing is that (after a slightly annoying registration process) you can manage all of your list options, etc. via the web interface, which is easier than listserv commands, given how infrequently most use them. --- David -- David _________________________________________ David Durand \ \ Director of Engineering Graduate Student no more! \ Dynamic Diagrams --------------------------------------------\ \__________________________
