Archives

All of the messages sent to each of these e-mail forums are archived on a weekly basis into an FTP directory on the server at Dartmouth College, where they are hosted. The archives extend back to the origin of each list, which for the general lute topic list was more than ten years ago. The most recent messages in each case are in a file in plain text format, while older ones are compressed into *.GZ files, a UNIX archive format. In order to utilize these files on a PC, you will need to have some kind of decompression utility.
