This is pretty much it for mailing lists for the coco. And its one list I
don't expire regularly. So my corpus of email from this list goes back to
Dec 2001, when I had to reinstall after a drive failure and wasn't able to
recover from the crappy tape system I was using for backups then. Now I use
virtual tapes on a big hard drive, and that appears to be at least 100x more
dependable than DDS2 tapes ever were.
As for forums, logging into one of them is more trouble than its worth to me,
email is faster, often by days.
