yep, that is good. I've got a bunch of news postings from 93/94/95 that I
lost local copies of, so hopefully I'll be able to get a few of the
follow-ups to those back at least.

well, they reckon their archive is about 1TB - I wonder how much space all
the useful stuff would take up? Less than 100GB surely (I could probably
manage to free up enough for that - not sure how I'd make it available to
everyone else though)

hopefully there'll be a way to hook up to site automatically and write a
client-side app to pull stuff off the site...
