[NAFEX] ibilio archives

I just double-checked, and yes clicking the archive link in either a 
yahoo-mail account or Hotmail yields "page not available".

I barely follow Pete's instructions, below, but does that mean accessing 
archive pages currently takes lots of computer time & fuss?  Is this the new 
method, or will it be easier in the near future.  (My NAFEX notes are a mix 
of paper & computer notes, but mostly a hand-written list of archive dates & 
message names, organized by topic, to refer to archive when I need it.)

I wonder if this has something to do with the nabble.com spidering we
got at around the same timeframe?  ibiblio may have added more security
to the archives to prevent automated intrusion.
