Subject: Searchable Archives Now Available Through January 2006
> Ron Holl and I have completed work converting the archives to a
> searchable form. All archives from the beginning (March 2001) though
> January 2006 are available. You can search on the subject field, message
> content, or name of poster. Content can be displayed by thread name --
> clickable to get to the messages -- or by direct message display with
> links to the complete messages. (Try it - it's simpler and clearer than
> it sounds.) You can also browse all messages a month at a time - all 4500
> of them!!!
> Our current intention is to update the archives just after the end of
> each month: for example, February will be added sometime during early
> March (depending on our schedules). We may add further search options and
> other features over time.
> The searchable archives currently live at Amenities (www.mlcollect.com).
> They may be moved to Dogeared after Scot learns to program, stay at
> Amenities, or live at both sites.
> When time allows, I'll be writing up detailed information accessible from
> the search page about how the searchable archives differ from the raw
> archives, how to do searches (although Ron has a sone a great job making
> this really simple and intuitive), and anything else appropriate.
