The techwr-L archives are a motherlode (and sometimes a battlefield)
of intellectually invigorating topics for your column! :-) If you
can dig up the introductory information you got when you subscribed,
you'll see references to commands that let you order up the archive
files month by month, or surf through them all like a database.
If you don't still have the information package, fire off a message
to listserv -at- vm1 -dot- ucc -dot- okstate -dot- edu with these two commands in the body
Say, would you consider posting your columns in techwr-L too?

Fun with semantics:
1. Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana.
2. Never hit a man with glasses; hit him with a baseball bat.
