Subject:        New on the SHAKSPER Fileserver: DISCUSS INDEX_6

After we migrated SHAKSPER from its mainframe (VM) platform at the University
of Toronto to its Unix platform at Bowie State, I discovered that the Unix
version did not currently support all of the functions to which we had been
accustomed.  Perhaps, the most lamentable loss was the Database Function.  The
Database Function enabled members to search past logs of discussions by key
words.  The upcoming revision of the LISTSERV software, due in late 1996, is
supposed to port this and other functions to the Unix version.

In the meantime, I would like to call attention to the manner that I
recommended that members search the logs in the past before someone figured out
the Database Function and explained it to me.  This method involves using the
Discussion Indexes. The Discussion Indexes are indexes of past discussions by
year. month, and digest number (Sample below).  Currently, the following
indexes are available:

        DISCUSS INDEX_1                 1990
        DISCUSS INDEX_2                 1991
        DISCUSS INDEX_3                 1992
        DISCUSS INDEX_4                 1993
        DISCUSS INDEX_5                 1994
        DISCUSS INDEX_6                 1995

The Index for 1997 is currently being prepared.

These are large files.  If you order them, you may wish to download them and
search them with a word processor.

To retrieve, for example, "The 1995 Discussion Index", send a one-line mail
