Now and then a good piece of lore, e.g. Lawrence Roberts' posting on the
18th cent. binders' strike, makes it to the printer, but most of the mail
is not relevant to me---distant exhibits, classes I could never attend,
most cyber- wars--- so I don't save it.
Overall, the list is extremely helpful and valuable to me and my requests
for specific help have always been rewarded with courteous and valuable
responses, for which I am duly thankful.
