Darn, and I haven't even posted anything in four days or so... I feel it's
all my fault...

You can already find the list on Usenet. Simply point yer newsreader to
something like:

1) List all groups,
2) Scroll down to "Bit" and open it,
3) Scroll s'more to "listserv" and open that,
4) One more long scroll to "techwr-l" and double-click.

One could even sort by threads, and skip the boring bits....

Those of us cool enough to know where "all the usual places" are, already
know to look for TECHWR-L in Usenet if we don't wanna fill up our email.

Those of us interested in providing useful information will offer the
following URL for those without current bookmarks to the "usual places:"
