The World Wide Web archives at


are on steroids. The following is new:

  o all messages over Andrew Bean's, the RQ Digest, and the Glorantha Digest     are now at this site (about 33MB! - I'm thinking of a CD ;-)

  o a powerful (though complex) search engine can search through all of these     messages (and more)

and the peace-duh-resistonce (hey, I'm a StormBull)

  o I am currently converting what I consider good/useful/fun messages into     HTML for viewing on the Web. The output from the browsers (Netscape and     Mosaic) onto a laser printer is excellent (not as good as Tales but...)

    I would appreciate any comments about these. Authors, if you want your     item (in its transformed state) removed from the archive let me know!

Here is a list of the items currently converted (and aren't they pretty when printed!):

For those who read this far, please let me know whether you want me to regularly (ie. once or fortnight or so) send a list of additions to the archive to this mailing list. It would seem logical so you can decide whether to revisit the archive or not.

Let me know please! Is this useful? It's certainly bl**dy hard work.
