I learned something new about searching SCREEN-L's archive of past
messages today and thought I'd share it with the list.
 
As you may know, all messages posted on SCREEN-L are kept in an archive
at [log in to unmask]  These messages may be retrieved by searching
through the archive, though this is somewhat cumbersome.  You send e-mail
to [log in to unmask] (note:  not to [log in to unmask]) with a
series of commands for the listserver to perform.
 
Anyway, what I learned today is how to nab messages from a specific
range of days (or months or years).  What follows is what you would
put in e-mail to [log in to unmask] if you were interested in
messages from 1 February to 7 February 1993:
 
//MYSEARCH JOB Echo=No
Database Search DD=SEARCH CPULIM=99:00 OUTLIM=10000
//SEARCH DD *
search * in SCREEN-L from 01 feb 93 to 07 feb 93
index
print all
/*
 
In response to this mail, listserver will send you all these messages
and an index listing all of them.
 
Happy hunting.

          What the great philosophers have said vis-a-vis love (as
          interpreted by Matt Groening):
              Love is a perky elf dancing a merry little jig and
              then suddenly he turns on you with a miniature
              machine gun.
                                     --Kierkegaard
