Thanks Jonathan,

You said: "What is irreplaceable on this list is not the archives, but 
Carl Conrad."

That's really what I was getting at... those posters like Carl.  He/they 
have probably posted MORE than enough to keep me busy for a lifetime... 
which is why I referred to the archives.

I will try to figure out how to download the pages and sort it out on my own.
