Via e-mail:

To get the archive file that contains the postings for 2/18-2/21,
send a message to <listserv -at- listserv -dot- okstate -dot- edu> with the line
below in the body (not the subject line) of the message.


If you ever want to get an index of all the archive files that are
available by e-mail, send the following message:

index TECHWR-L

You should get a reply listing all available files. Request the file
you want using the same syntax of the "get" command above, changing
the last part to the name of the file. A message containing the
complete archive file should eventually show up in your inbox.

Via the Web/Usenet:

Since about the 18th, all techwr-l messages are now being gatewayed
to the Usenet newsgroup <bit.listserv.techwr-l>, which means you can
get to the most recent ones using a newsreader, and to both recent
and (some) past ones through DejaNews or a similar site. DejaNews's
"power search form" <> will let
you search by date and by group (or "forum" as they call it on the
search form -- make sure to use <bit.listserv.techwr-l>).

Keep in mind that when searching via DejaNews, you will (mostly) be
searching only the archives of messages that have been posted since
about February 18, 1999. To search a complete archive, use either
<> or (when it's
working) <>. I
don't think either will let you search by date, though.

Via FTP:

The best way to get complete archive files might be by ftp from
<> -- but that server isn't
working now, so you'll need to use one of the alternatives above.
