Searching the PBS Archives

Hi All,

Three or four weeks ago I noticed that the pbs archives could no longer be 
searched by words as the box that allowed you do so was gone. I wrote 
ibiblio asking about it, but did not get a response. Yesterday one of our 
members wrote privately asking about it so I wrote them again and this 
morning got a reply. Apparently one of the previous ibiblio staffers had 
created this utility outside of the mailman software and they are not 
longer supporting it.

Although they would like to see this included in the future, it would be up 
to the software developers of mailman to add it in an update. I found the 
url for mailman:

Maybe if a number of us emailed them and told them how much we would 
appreciate their adding a search feature to the archive page it would 
encourage them to do so.

In the meantime, our list can be searched on Google. If you add in pbslist 
to whatever other key words you are using, perhaps it would help narrow 
down what you find to our posts, or at least move them closer to the top 
pages of the find.
