Below is a message that I received today regarding the new archives.
Please try it out. Enjoy!

>The new search engine server is now online and can operate at the
>speed of a full T1 connection.
>Courtesy of hacks by Dale Schneider, you can search the USGenWeb
>Archives, now with *headlines* and *updated* to within the last 24
>Courtesy of hacks by Karen Isaacson, you can search the archives of
>any mailing list (except those withdrawn by the listowner), now with

>By the way, the next server we'll be bringing online will be a box
>dedicated to supporting Marc Nozell's HTMLized versions of the
>mailing list archives. We should have that box online within 48
>hours, though it's reasonable to expect Marc to need a little time
>after that to get his software installed. (:
>Projects after that include a dedicated IRC server, upgrading the
>mail hub, upgrading the main Web server, building a NT-based
>FrontPage server, bringing a "dirtylists" list server online, and
>bringing a third ordinary list server online.
>[ The "dirtylists" server is for the big, rarely used announcement

> 300,000 subscribers, and every time a post drops we kick the
> daylights out of the list server with hundreds or even thousands of
> bounces. We need a specially tuned box to handle these turkeys. ]
>No rest for the wicked, I suppose ... Cheers, B.
