The archives are at

and one can also post from there after following a simple procedure for 
self-assigning a password.

As for listserv problems, there are two.  (1) It doesn't start properly when the 
computer is rebooted which is fortunately pretty seldom. (2) I'm allowing 
non-text posts and gigantic posts can crash listserv.  Non-text posts are a 
reasonable thing to allow and hopefully the recently set 1MB limit will 
alleviate the problem with crashing.

It is a simple matter to restart lsv and it doesn't loose posts made when it is 
down.  It is also a simple matter to let me know when it needs restarting, 
please do.
