Subject:        New on the SHAKSPER Fileserver: DISCUSS INDEX_7

In May I explained that 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.

I also recommended that members use the Discussion Indexes to assist in
locating discussions of past topics until the Database Function is available in
Unix LISTSERV. The Discussion Indexes are indexes of past discussions by
year. month, and digest number (Sample below).  Today, DISCUSS INDEX_7, the
index of discussions for 1996, is available with entries from January 1996
through May 1996.  I will try to keep this index update by the month.
Now, indexes of all SHAKSPER digests from 1990 through May 1996 are on the
Fileserver:

        DISCUSS INDEX_1                 1990
        DISCUSS INDEX_2                 1991
        DISCUSS INDEX_3                 1992
        DISCUSS INDEX_4                 1993
        DISCUSS INDEX_5                 1994
        DISCUSS INDEX_6                 1995
        DISCUSS INDEX_7                 1996

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