Subject: Accessing list archives

Since there's been some question about our list archives, I thought I'd

There are several ways to access the archive. Probably the easiest is from 
the Spoon home page, whose URL is

This method of archive access also allows you to use the Excite search engine
to locate archive files containing discussion of specific topics. 

You can also access the archive using gopher. The path is: of the Institute/
						Discussion Lists/Spoons

Another way is through the majordomo command "get".  In this method, you obtain
selected files by sending commands to the following address:

First, send the message 

	index deleuze-guattari

to find out what files are available and what their full path names are.
Then send the message

	get deleuze-guattari FILENAME

for every file you'd like to look at, where FILENAME includes the name of
the directory the given file is in, as returned from the "index" command
(e.g. "get deleuze-guattari deleuze-guattari_1995/deleuze-guattari_Dec.95.ind").

Another way is through anonymous ftp from
The directory is

The archive is divided into subdirectories by year.  The names of the
individual files reflect their chronology.  The files with the ".ind" suffix 
contain tables of contents.  If you're accessing the archive via e-mail to 
majordomo or via FTP, the best way is to first get the ".ind" files for 
the given period, and then decide, on the basis of the tables of contents, 
which actual message-files you want.
