Vulcan-L archive

There is an archive of Vulcan-L traffic available 

in the directory tree rooted at /pub/vulcan-l

To avoid having the archive copied by indexing bots, and spam
email address harvesters, the archive is _not_ available by 
anonymous FTP. Access is thru a userid with the accompanying login.
At present (30 June 2002), the userid is "list". The word to
get in, is "archive". This will be changed at a later date.
The changes will be announced in advance.

Vulcan-Linguistics archive

The archive of the Vulcan-Linguistics list is not presently
available, but should be "soon" (Whether "soon" is measured in
quantum or geologic timescales has yet to be determined)

These archives are not searchable. They are simply zip-compressed
files containing traffic from each list.
