Yeah, I'd be super happy if he joined the list.  I enjoyed reading
those, wished he had gone into more detail.

On the Usenet topic, does anyone remember dejanews?  Searchable
archive of all the posts to Usenet.  Google bought them and then,
so far as I know, the searchable part went away.

If someone knows how to search back to the beginnings of Usenet,
my early tech life is all there, I'd love to be able to show my kids
that.  Big arguing with Mash on comp.arch, following Guy Harris on
comp.unix-wizards, etc.
