I closed membership on this group some years back and haven't accepted
any new members since then.

archives available to download. I can confirm that I have done this. I
already had all the posts on file anyway.
Lately I have been receiving requests from folk wanting to join the

and or wanting the group archive then sorry the group is now formally
closed and I will not be accepting any further membership requests. I
have tried to tinker with the group settings but it appears to have
little functionality now, particularly since I made the group private
some years back. There have been numerous times when trying to use the

were entangled in a hacking scare some while back and that may have made
them rethink the interface... who knows.
AnyYahoo... the Group remains a mailing list for those that are
currently members and wish to communicate. However in terms of the
future it really is a dead horse and the archive like the group is private.
How you dooooooin ?
